A five-year-old Chihuahua named Skye was stolen by someone in Miami Lakes around 8 a.m. Wednesday.
Sky is the only family of a 72-year-old homeless man named Pedro Carrion. They live north of the Palmetto Highway. They love and support each other.
The heartbroken father wanted to return the puppy. Carrion told:«It’s like when someone loses their child. My life was bad. And it wasn’t the first time they tried to take it away from me.»
Carrion also stated that Skye is his assistant.He always helps him psychologically. The longer the dog was away, the more Carrion feared the worst.
«I really love my dog. He’s my life. I have no family, no children. My dog is my medicine. He means so much to me.»
After Sky’s disappearance, worried neighbors banded together to help him find the dog.They started a GoFundMe page to help Carrion and Sky find each other.More than $9,000 has been collected out of the planned $10,000.
«We think we can find Sky through social media. We can also raise funds to help Pedro get back on his feet and find a home. All the donated money will go to Pedro so that he has a roof over his head.»
People often mistakenly believe that someone who doesn’t have a home doesn’t take good care of their dog or cat.In particular, in the case of Sky:Carrion feeds him well. He takes him to the vet regularly to make sure the dog has the appropriate vaccines.
Many locals intervened to say how strong the bond between Skye and Carrion is and how much a person loves his dog.
On December 6, the long-awaited end to this story appeared on the GoFundMe page. Someone anonymously returned Sky to his father.
«I am pleased to inform everyone that last night someone anonymously returned Sky to Pedro!!!! The Sky is in excellent condition and Pedro couldn’t be happier!!!! I want to thank everyone who helped bring Sky home! Pedro wants everyone to know that he is very grateful to everyone who helps him and shows love! God bless you, good guys!»
