Gursharan and Pixie at home
PETALING JAYA: It was sweet reunion for Pixie, a seven-year-old Jack Russel Terrier, and her owner following her "abduction" by car thieves on July 30.
Pixie was found covered in mud and wandering along a roadside in Setapak by a resident, T Kasturi, on Monday.
She had been missing since 11pm on July 30 when her owner Gursharan Singh left his Mitsubishi Triton car outside a bank in Sungai Buloh to deposit some cheques. Robbers had driven the car away with Pixie inside.
Gursharan, 34, said he was extremely grateful to all the people who had helped find Pixie as it has been tough going without his pet.
He said had received a call from a P. Vidya who had sent him pictures of Pixie asking for verification.
He said he could not believe the call and had braced himself for disappointment since Pixie was missing for 12 days and his family and friends had told him to accept that a small dog could not have survived alone.
"Vidya sent a few pictures of her in different angles and I immediately recognised the markings on her body.
"I was completely ecstatic. Vidya then set a place for me to meet her and collect Pixie and I went and got her," he said when contacted by The Star Online.
According to Kasturi, she saw a dog by the side of the road while she was on the way to a friend's house and realised something was amiss. On driving back, she saw the dog at the same place in the same position.
She took the dog home, showered and fed her. She realised later that the dog was Pixie, the one reported missing in The Star Online and called Vidya who took the dog.
"They called Vidya who got in touch with me," Gursharan said.
Gursharan said Pixie was not hurt and was adjusting to the idea of being back home.
"I was extremely worried as she was afraid of thunder and lighting and I really do not know how she got through the last few days when it was raining heavily.
"I am sure Pixie would have a lot to say if she could talk," said Gursharan who has looked after Pixie since she was four months old.
