CITRUS HEIGHTS --

An update to a story we brought you last week.

Moe the chihuahua has been found safe.

Last month, Moe was swiped from the Shell gas station on Madison and Sunrise in Citrus Heights.

Since then, the search has been ongoing for the 14-year-old epileptic dog who needs medication. A local vet recognized the pooch when someone brought him in for seizures, and he has since been returned to his owner Tim Nelson.

"And no questions asked, she didn't even want the reward that we had for her," Nelson told FOX40.

Nelson said he would not have got Moe back without the help of his friends, including Lynn Davis, who have been handing out flyers of his chihuahua.

"We have been on these corners for days holding up signs," Davis said. "I drove from my office which is in North Highlands all the way down Madison today and literally I saw posters on every intersection of him."
