NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A puppy that was stolen off its leash outside a south Nashville home in August was returned to the residence early Saturday morning.
The owners told News 2 that “Boomer” was found tied to a telephone pole in their yard.
Angie Corbett said she went outside Saturday morning around 7 a.m. to take out the trash, when she saw Boomer. “I completely dropped the trash and flew over there and he was just wagging his little butt and just barking and I just started crying.”
10-year-old Khalik Corbett said he awoke when he heard his mother yell, “Boomer’s Back!” Khalik said, “I jumped out of my bed. I was shocked.”
Boomer had been missing since August 14, when father K.C. Corbett said he told Khlaik to take the 10-week-old pit bull puppy for a walk outside their home on Ezell Pike.
“Five minutes later he ran inside and said, ‘Dad someone stole Boomer!’” said Corbett. “I ran out after I asked him if he was okay. I got in my car and tried to find them but I couldn’t get to them. By the time I got to Harding Place I lost them.”
According to Khalik, he was walking the puppy on Ezell Pike when two men in a rust-colored car pulled up beside him. He said one of the men got out and started asking questions.
“Are you all breeding sometime? How old is he? Stuff like that,” said Khalik.
The man, who Khalik described as a white man with a dark beard and short dark hair, bent down to pet the pup. “He reached down, took off the leash and drove off. “
The Corbett family told News 2 Boomer appears to be healthy but they are going to take him to the veterinarian to make sure.
