DETROIT, Mich- An elderly woman has been reunited with her Shih Tzu after it was stolen from her.

Last Thursday, 82-year-old “Audrey” was attacked and had her 7-year-old dog named Sugar Daddy stolen. After that, “Audrey’s” family sprung into action, hanging up posters and even offering a $5,000 dollar reward. “I was unable to eat, not able to sleep or do anything,” says Audrey.

Turns out, Sugar Daddy was at the Michigan Humane Society most of the time he was gone. “As far as we know, he came into us as a stray animal, but he was turned in and we scan every animal,” said Anna Chrisman with MHS.

Since Sugar Daddy had a microchip, the Michigan Humane Society knew exactly where he belonged and reunited the animal with its proper owner.

Audrey and her family believe the thieves were the ones who turned in Sugar Daddy, but say they aren’t going to press charges, they’re just glad the pooch is home.
