A Boise woman is facing a felony charge after she failed to return a lost dog, police said.
The dog got separated from its owners in a parking lot. The owners received a call from a woman who had found their pet, but had given it to Kelly Renee Featherston, 49.
The caller gave the dogs owners Featherstons contact information so they could retrieve their dog.
But when the owner asked Featherston for the dog, a toy breed valued at around $700, she said she did not have it.
The dog owner called police, who also asked Featherston about the dog. She denied keeping it several times, but eventually let officers into her home to do a search.
Police recovered the pet from her home, and reunited it with the owner. Featherston was arrested and charged with grand theft.
The woman was given several chances to return the animal without consequences, police said.
If convicted, Featherston could face one year to 14 years in prison.
