Riverside police recovered a stolen puppy that was intended as a gift for a 7-year-old girl with leukemia, authorities said Wednesday. The pug was supposed to be a Christmas present from a Riverside woman, who had heard about the child's plight, authorities said. Shawna Hamon gave the dog to an acquaintance who promised to deliver the puppy to the girl in Sacramento. But the acquaintance kept the dog and allegedly hid the animal after she learned that Hamon had alerted law enforcement, according to the Riverside Police Department.

The inflatable puppy in a hot dog bun was designed to turn heads and stop traffic. And no doubt it would on so many other corners, in so many cities other than this one. Even at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, it was a bit odd to see a bunned, 10-foot-long dog lying on its side, with big black eyes and a belly striped with ketchup and mustard. But was it any odder, really, than to walk through a web of Spider-Men - one rail-thin, one chubby, one wearing a bulging fanny pack?

It's his first children's book in a decade.

A Highland Park man was arrested on suspicion of felony animal cruelty after police said he kicked a 3-month-old French bulldog puppy and swung it in the air "like a yo-yo," Los Angeles police officials said Monday. Joseph Fragoso, 28, was arrested Sunday night in the 1500 block of Avenue 54 near York Boulevard after patrol officers with the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Area Station received a call from a witness that a man carrying a puppy suddenly threw it to the sidewalk and kicked it for no apparent reason.

Los Angeles firefighters rescued animals Monday morning from a burning pet store in East Hollywood. Puppies, rabbits and fish were among those saved after a fire broke out around 6 a.m. in the strip mall housing Kim's Pets & Fish at 1193 N. Vermont Ave. A neighbor told media members that some people tried to steal the puppies as they were being brought out of the burning building. It took firefighters about an hour to douse the flames, which destroyed an attic above the pet store and another business.  It was not immediately clear whether any animals had perished.

An hours-long search for a puppy trapped in a drainage pipe at a Newport Coast home ended sadly Thursday night, authorities said. The 7-week-old male puppy named Hunter was reported trapped at about 6:53 p.m., according to a news release from the Newport Beach Fire Department. "Unfortunately, based off of our experience there yesterday ... we don't think the dog survived," Fire Capt. Mike Liberto said Friday. A fire engine and the department's Urban Search and Rescue Team responded to the scene, where crews used specialized equipment like confined-space optical cameras to search for the missing canine, Liberto said.
