The couple had found Luke as a street puppy in Greece last year. They adopted him, got him a pet passport and even embedded a microchip before taking on to the world tour.

On July 8, when the couple were near Marina beach, Chennai, the dog was stolen by an auto rickshaw driver from near their car.

The couple tried to search the dog everywhere but of no use; they approached the Blue Cross, also launched a WhatsApp campaign, and filed a complaint with the Marina police station.



Nearly three weeks after the couple lost the dog, they received a call from Vijaya Narayanan, an animal welfare worker based out of Besant Nagar in Chennai, who told them that she had the information about the dog’s whereabouts.

According to Narayanan, she had put ads in Tamil newspapers, printed over 10k flyers, and even went to every pet shop, breeders, dog trainers and veterinary clinics, to search for Luke. She had received numerous calls from people who believed they have found Luke.

The entire exercise came to an end when a couple contacted Narayanan and said they had kept Luke at their house for a few days.

After so much hard work and relentless efforts, Janin and Steffen finally received the happy news that Luke was in Chennai. On October 23, they came down to Chennai to meet Luke.
