Mr. Fengbo asked for help from his friends and family. The sad thing about dognapping in China is that it’s so common and the dogs will most likely end up being sold for their meat.

Fortunately, the thieves somehow felt sorry for the blind man, and returned his dog to him 35 hours later. Qiaoqiao was left at Mr. Fengbo’s massage clinic, and she had a note around her neck that read “Please forgive us.”


The police suspect that the thieves returned the dog because of the unusual amount of police and media attention it was getting.
