When a man in England realized his pet pooch was missing he decided to email the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos. Richard Guttfield of Marsworth, England realized foul play may have been involved in his missing 11-month-old miniature schnauzer Wilma's disappearance after discovering an Amazon delivery truck entered his home to deliver a package. Guttfield was next door in his barn when the package was delivered and he found it was inside his porch door meaning the driver had to have entered his home.

When he first realized Wilma was missing, Guttfield quickly made a post on Facebook hoping to get a lead. "My miniature schnauzer went missing from my house in Marsworth near Tring, any help in helping us find her would be so appreciated," Guttfield wrote. His post got 130 shares and several comments of concern. Guttfield wrote another post on May 3 saying, "Wilma is back home and doing well, she was taken by a driver delivering an Amazon parcel to my house." The story of how he was reunited with his dog Wilma is something else.
After posting several lost dog flyers and a plea on social media, Guttfield decided to email Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos who leaves his email open to the public. He explained how the package should have been a standard Amazon delivery and the driver should have left the package in the designated "safe box". Instead, Guttfield found the package inside his porch and the driver had apparently let himself inside his home.

An Amazon employee named Rob was scanning through Bezo's emails when he came across Guttfield's plea for help. Guttfield later explained on Facebook that Rob went to the delivery driver's home and found the dog and brought her back to him. He wrote on Facebook, "Rob at Amazon UK was simply wonderful, he didn't listen to the driver when he said he didn't remember the dogs and he went to the drivers home and found Wilma and brought her straight back, thanks Rob!"
An Amazon spokesperson confirmed the driver is no longer delivering for Amazon and worked for an independent contractor. The spokesperson added, "This is inexcusable and does not reflect the high standards we have for our delivery partners – we take these matters seriously."
