Video: Owner and stolen dog have emotional reunion after being separated for 3 days

Police in Sacramento, California, captured emotional footage of a dog and its owner reuniting after being separated for three days.

Officers were investigating a dog that was stolen from her owner’s front yard in southern Sacramento.

Fortunately, after just three days, officers were able to retrieve Rubi Rose and return her to her owner.

Video captured on April 28 shows an officer walking Rubi Rose out of the station and outside where her owner was waiting with open arms. The excited pup wiggled and wagged her tail with excitement as they embraced.
