Stolen from Miami-Dade shelter, a dog now finds home filled with love – MiamiHerald.com

For a few days, a stolen Shih Tzu named Lucky was anything but.

Someone dropped him at a public animal shelter right before Christmas. Then, he was snatched from the shelter, along with a rat terrier on Dec. 27, and disappeared.

But Lucky is once again living up to his moniker. He now belongs to North Miami Beach restaurateur Lila Klein and her husband, Frank Klein.

The rat terrier remains missing.

“He’s our king!’’ said Lila Klein, 56, who owns the Peruvian Kitchen and an adjacent frame shop. She and Frank had been dog less since the death of their beloved Lhasa apso, Cowboy Pete, 11 years ago.

A woman with long hair brought Lucky to the restaurant on Dec. 29 and offered him to Lila, saying she had several dogs and couldn’t keep another.
