Toronto family reunited with Muffy the stolen dog

Every pet owner's worst nightmare came true for a family in Toronto after their sweet baby angel was stolen from their home earlier this month.

Muffy the dog and her family were victims of a break-and-enter when their house in Etobicoke was robbed and thieves made off with the precious pup.

Owner Ana Valenzuela distributed flyers around her neighborhood and launched a Facebook page while the police issued a press release looking for any information related to little Muffy.

The tiny Yorkshire terrier resurfaced on social media three weeks later and police were able to track down and nab the suspects through the posting.

Muffy has since been reunited with her family who say that despite losing weight, she's otherwise okay but "still a little scared."
