Dog stolen from Greenville adoption event returned safely to police


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Lucky Pup Rescue SC spent days looking for one of their foster dogs, Zoro, who was taken from Aloft Hotel in Greenville.

And here’s more good news: Zoro is being adopted by a family from Georgia, and should be with his new family by the end of the week.
