A pet pooch stolen from Pope Francisâ€™ grandniece has been found safe and sound.
Romina Ayelen Bergoglio lost cash, valuables and her dog after a burglary at her apartment in the western Argentine city of Mendoza, Central European News reported on Monday.
After finding her apartment ransacked, she made a public appeal to find her micro toy pooch Phill.
â€œReward offered! Robbers entered in my house and robbed my micro toy dog, he is small, white and fluffy with a blue collar and responds to the name Phill,â€ Bergoglio, 27, posted on Facebook.
â€œSome men took him in a silver grey Golf license plate number EPP 100. I have to find my dog, I donâ€™t care how.â€
She added: â€œPhill is what matters most to me. He is worth more than everything else I have. I want to die.â€
A Facebook user later commented that he had spotted Phill, leading to the joyous reunion, according to CEN.
The dog-loving woman is related to Pope Francis through her grandfather, Jorge Bergoglio, the pontiffâ€™s cousin.
Cops are still looking for the burglars.
