Dog returned to bikini-wearing pet owner in San Diego

December 1, 2011 |  6:59 pm

A 20-year-old woman who stood on a busy corner in La Jolla wearing a bikini to draw attention to her lost dog has been reunited with her pet.

Arlene Mossa Corona, a student at Mesa College, stood on the corner for parts of six days seeking the public's help in finding her Chihuahua, named Chispeta. The bikini helped attract national news coverage.

Finally, a caller informed Corona about a woman who had the dog and a reunion was arranged.

Corona said she plans to get the dog implanted with a microchip so it can be easily identified in the future.
