Arlene Mossa Corona wore a bikini and held up a sign with pictures of her dog Chispeta in an intersection of La Jolla Village Dr. and Genesee Ave. before Thanksgiving.
The woman who donned a bikini to bring attention to her lost dog has been reunited with her small Chihuahua named Chispita.
But Arlene Corona remained outside wearing nothing but a two-piece, after her mother picked up the dog at the animal shelter Tuesday afternoon.
The white Chihuahua that Corona said she was desperately searching for was picked up at the Carlsbad animal shelter around noon on Tuesday by her mother, according to Lt. Dan DeSousa of San Diego County Animal Services.
Corona remained outside holding up a sign for her dog as of 3:45 p.m. the same day.
Her mother initially discovered that the dog was at a nearby animal shelter on Monday.
DeSousa said the dog had an ear infection and a couple minor injuries.
The woman who turned the dog into the animal services said the dog did not have a microchip and required veterinary attention.
Corona remained outside holding up pictures of her missing dog even after a man texted her a picture of his genitals, causing concern she was possibly being stalked.
Corona did not return calls to NBC San Diego for comment.
