A taxidermied dog was stolen from its owners in the City of Commerce. The stiff and stolen pooch is named CC a three-pound chihuahua that died more than a year ago.
Ron Cenko and his wife, a couple from San Diego, are the owners of the now missing chihuahua. They took CC to a taxidermy shop in Burbank to memorialize their family pet and keep her at home.
When CC was finally ready to be reunited with the Cenkos, Ron picked her up from the taxidermy shop on Saturday in a sealed box and headed home to San Diego. He stopped at a restaurant in Commerce to use the restroom where he believes someone broke into his car, stealing a laptop, some gadgets, and the box containing CC.
The Cenko family has now lost their canine companion for the second time.
Cenko pleaded with the public when he spoke with KTLA.
“Please reach into your heart and think about the pain that we are both feeling, losing our little girl yet one more time. I know it’s a longshot, but she was a very sweet, dear little girl and part of our life. I hope in the City of Angels there is an angel out there that can help us.”
