Sweet: Sugar is found, mostly unharmed
Sugar, the New York City dog whose owners believed she was being held for ransom, has been found — tied to a bush in Prospect Park, a block from her family’s home.
Drucie Belman said she received a call Tuesday morning from a man who said Sugar was tied to a bush in the park.
The family thought it might be a hoax, but when they ran down the street to check, they found Sugar.
“We could see her bat ears from a block away and all four of us started running and just fell upon her,” Drucie Belman told ABC Eyewitness News.
Sugar had been bitten by the caller’s dog, but, after a visit to her vet, she is reportedly back home and doing fine.
After Sugar ran off during a trip to the park last week, the family received a call from a man who demanded cash for the dog. Belman believes the man called back a second time and said “Good luck finding your dog.”
She never heard from him again. It’s not known how Sugar ended up tied to a bush.
