KENNESAW, Ga. -- Taryn Ford and Jonas Speight happily take their 13-week-old puppy Heather out for a walk.
When 11Alive News talked with them last week, they were convinced they'd never see her again.
That was before a visit from a Cobb County police detective Friday night.
"When the detective knocked on our door, the puppy jumped out of his arms and ran to us. We couldn't believe our eyes," said Speight.
The couple is now convinced they were victims of an online scam.
"The case is still open, but this now looks like a premeditated scheme. We're being told the same people who sold us Heather are the ones also involved in stealing her," said Ford.
