SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A puppy stolen from the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society has been returned to the man who'd been ready to adopt her.
Robin, a 2-month-old cocker-spaniel and husky mix, was minutes from being adopted when someone smuggled her from her cage Dec. 15. The media reports that a police officer spotted a woman walking the dog in Sioux Falls last week.
The woman readily handed the pooch over to authorities. The media reports that police don't believe the woman was the dog-snatcher, and no charges have been filed. Robin has been reunited with the man who had planned to give her a "forever" home.
The area Humane Society's director, Kori Baade, said the man had called about Robin every day since her disappearance. Getting her back was a "Christmas present."
