But she was found Tuesday night and two people are facing charges.
Authorities located "Kisses" after a worker with the pet adoption group determined that a woman who wanted to adopt her had been turned down.
Police went to the address on the application and, after a man answered the door, officers saw a woman quickly scoop up a small dog matching "Kisses" description.
Charges of receiving stolen property were filed again Heather Behan of Bergenfield and her boyfriend, Jonathan Jauregui of Dumont.
It would have cost nearly $500 to legally adopt "Kisses."
