Mr. Cutie, a rescued Chihuahua belonging to John Simpson, was found by Missy Figueroa on June 2 after he escaped from a neighbors property by digging a hole under the fence. The neighbor had been caring for Mr. Cutie since John went into hospice care.
In an FOX13 Tampa interview with Missy late Friday night, she said through her tears “this person that I don’t even know, I’m so excited to see his dog and I’m so happy that I got to be here for that and just make him happy.”
The little dog went crazy with doggy love when reunited with his owner. It wasn’t certain until the reunion actually took place that this was indeed Mr. Cutie.
John told reporters he’d been praying to Saint Jude every day for the return of his pet. John and his hospice caregivers are working together to make sure he and Mr. Cutie can spend as much time together as possible.
