Purloined Pup Returned After Owner Emails Jeff Bezos

email to jeff bezos helps man retrieve missing dog

A puppy that went missing after a delivery of dog food was returned to his owner. 

According to CNBC, businessman Richard Guttfield, 51, was at a loss to explain how his black miniature schnauzer, Wilma, went missing. The only thing he had to go on was the fact an Amazon delivery driver had dropped off a shipment of dog food. 

Since there was nothing else to go on, Guttfield decided it was worth a shot, and emailed Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to see if he could help. 

"My puppy went missing after an Amazon delivery and after an email to Jeff (Bezos)… we had someone who was amazing who tracked the driver and found our dog and brought her home," he told CNBC.

Metro reports that it's believed that Amazon checked the driver's GPS log and discovered he had made a trip home before moving onto his next delivery. That's where Wilma was found a few days later. 


Amazon says the driver will no longer be delivering its packages. 

"This is inexcusable and does not reflect the high standards we have for our delivery partners," a spokesperson for the company said. "We take these matters seriously and this individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages for the independent delivery service provider."

Many of the drivers that deliver packages for the company are independent couriers, and do not work directly for the company.
