  • COURTESY HAWAIIAN HUMANE SOCIETY

    Pebble was stolenTuesday along with a pitbull mix named Punu after a man had a “meet and greet” with Punu.

A Honolulu Police Department officer this morning spotted a man at McKinley High School with a small black dog that turned out to be the terrier mix taken from the Humane Society adoption shelter last week.

The man was arrested, according to a press release from the Humane Society.

After the HPD officer recognized the dog, Pebble, she was taken to the shelter where a microchip scan confirmed her identity. Pebble was stolen Tuesday along with a pitbull mix named Punu after a man had a “meet and greet” with Punu.

Punu was located Thursday after a tip led to the arrest of a man who was found with the pitbull mix near Royal Elementary School on Queen Emma Street.

Pebble is about 3 years old, and Punu is 2 to 4 years old.
