Woman Uses Bikini to Search for Missing Dog
INSIDE EDITION caught up with a young woman who went to extreme measures to find her missing dog by wearing a bikini in hopes of attracting more attention to her search.
Why was a college student wearing a bikini on a busy street corner passing out flyers on a chilly day in San Diego?
Arlene Corona was taking desperate measures to find her little Chihuahua Chippy who disappeared two weeks ago. So to get attention, the 20-year-old wore a skimpy white bikini and red high heels hoping someone would turn in her missing dog.
"A lot of people think it's a joke. They think I'm ridiculous. They think I'm crazy," said Corona.
When Corona told her mom about her bikini idea, she got the cold shoulder.
"She's not going to do that. I go, 'No, there's a lot of lunatics out there,' " said her mother.
INSIDE EDITION was with Corona as she passed out flyers. But just as she was about to give up for the day, she got a phone call.
Someone had dropped off a Chihuahua at the local shelter. Could it be Chippy? Corona's mom told her to rush right home.
Yes, it was Chippy and INSIDE EDITION was there exclusively as Corona was reunited with her adorable Chihuahua.
It turns out, an eighth grader found the dog and handed her over to the shelter. Corona says she has no regrets about her bikini plea and will never again let Chippy out of her sight.
"I'm having six leashes on her. I'm going to do whatever I can. She is never getting away again," said Corona.
