Stolen Dog Reunited with Family

Razzie was taken from the front yard of an Upper Makefield home last week.

Razzie is back.

The dog, a white cavachon, was reunited with her family on Monday, more than a week after she was snatched up from her front yard in Upper Makefield.

Witnesses told Kovacevich they saw a couple take Razzie from their Upper Makefield yard last Sunday afternoon.

According to owner Nancy Kovacevich, a woman brought Razzie to Pleasant Valley Animal Hospital in Quakertown on Monday. Her tag was scanned and the vet called Kovacevich that afternoon.

Kovacevich said she spoke to the snatcher briefly and her story was vague.

"She said she was on a country road a few days ago and picked up the dog because she was worried that the dog would be hurt," Kovacevich said. The couple then kept her for eight days before bringing her to the animal hospital in Quakertown.

Kovacevich credits the community and media coverage for Razzie's safe return. After an article appeared on Newtown Patch Thursday about the dognapping, Fox 29 News ran a story about Razzie on Friday night.

"My opinion is that all of the Razzie press forced (the dognapper) to come forward,"  Kovacevich said.
