'Bruno Is Home!': French Bulldog Reunited With California Family After Being Snatched Off Street

This is the adorable moment a French bulldog named Bruno was reunited with his owners, nearly two weeks after the Alameda County Sheriff said he was snatched in his San Lorenzo neighborhood.

Footage posted on Facebook by the sheriff’s office shows an excited Bruno racing to be with owner Denise Esparza and her family.

On September 5, Denise Esparza had told KTVU of her heartbreak when Bruno was taken.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said detectives from the Property Crimes Unit obtained a partial licence plate number from surveillance footage which enabled them to identify two suspects, both of whom were arrested after Bruno was found during a traffic stop in Wilcox, Arizona.
