FORDHAM MANOR, the Bronx — A Bronx family was reunited with their missing puppy Tuesday more than a week after Luna went missing.

The family feared the 2-month-old pit bull mix had been stolen. A man was walking with a pit bull puppy in the bottom basket of a baby stroller on Monday, May 6, at around 11:15 a.m. when the dog jumped out of the basket near the corner of Jerome Avenue and East 190th Street, unbeknownst to the owner, according to police.

He went back to look for her the moment he realized she was gone. Another person heard him calling for the dog and told the man someone had picked up the puppy and left with her in a car.

An investigation determined that an unidentified woman was seen with the dog in a white BMW, authorities said.

Police released video hoping to track the woman down. Just hours after the video was released, the woman brought the puppy to the 52nd precinct.
