Wait. Another Dog Named Mochi Is Stolen in San Francisco.

Don't retire those “Help Find Mochi” signs just yet. Another pup named Mochi has gone missing and the owner believes the white pomeranian was stolen in the Richmond District last Friday. 

Richmondsfblog.com reports the details of the latest dog drama, saying that the pup slipped away and was last seen getting into a stranger's car at Third and Balboa. The owner, Teresa, tells the blog that she's reached out to shelters with no luck of finding her 6-year-old dog. 

“A couple witnesses reported an Asian man, between the age of 40-60, in a beige SUV (possibly a Honda CRV – unconfirmed) picked her up and drove off,” Teresa tells the blog.
[jump] So now she needs your help: 

Just yesterday, police recovered another stolen dog also named Mochi who was taken from her Gilbert Street home while her owner, David Baker, slept. Baker launched an aggressive social media campaign to find his pit bull — and it worked. Police tracked down 31-year-old Melissa Perna Monday night who was in possession of the pup. Perna was arrested and charged with felony burglary, felony possession of stolen property, and two misdemeanor narcotics charges.

Officer Grace Gatpandan says the latest Mochi theft has not yet been reported to police. In any event, please be on the look out.
