MILL BASIN, Brooklyn — A dog taken during a Brooklyn carjacking was found, police said Sunday.

Luna, a Toy Poodle, was in the parked Honda with a 73-year-old woman when the carjacker physically removed the victim from the car, hopped in and drove off — with the dog still inside the vehicle — on June 6, officials said.

The woman’s head was injured during the carjacking.

A missing poster for Luna described her as friendly, quiet and approachable.

Police have not yet arrested the carjacker.
