Abducted guide dog returns home

Qiaoqiao, a 7-year-old black Labrador, has come home two days after she was abducted in Shunyi District in Beijing on Feb. 22. Her owner, Tian Fengbo, found an apology note inside a plastic bag hanging on Qiaoqiao's neck, saying: "We are sorry."

Two days before, a lost pet notice for Qiaoqiao, who is a guide dog for her blind owner, went viral online. The notice said that Qiaoqiao was forcibly taken away in a van in Mapo in Shunyi District.

For his master, blind masseur Tian Fengbo, Qiaoqiao is his "eyes." During the two days Qiaoqiao was missing, Tian's family, friends and a lot of caring netizens searched for Qiaoqiao everywhere.

Qiaoqiao returned at about 7:00 p.m. yesterday, just as Tian's family was about to leave to go search for her again, said Tian. Qiaoqiao was excited to reunite with the family. She rushed up to her master’s legs and kept barking at him. Tian’s family cried with joy. 

They found a white plastic bag hanging on Qiaoqiao's neck. In it was an apology note, saying: "We are sorry. We send the dog back and beg your pardon. We have also been under great pressure these two days..."

According to Xie, Tian's friend, Qiaoqiao seemed listless after she came back. "We immediately gave her water and food. She ate more than usual. Qiaoqiao has stuck to her master like glue since she’s been back."

When Tian was asked if he would go after the perpetrators, he said: "Honestly, they were kind to send the dog back. I care more about the welfare of animals, especially guide dogs, than about finding the perpetrators."
