Stolen Dog Returned to Animal Shelter

Workers at a New Milford animal shelter are breathing a sigh of relief after their beloved pit bull Rocky, who they feared stolen, was returned on Monday.

Llewellyn, a Kennel Attendant at the Animal Welfare Society of New Milford, said immediate panic set in after Rocky, 6, disappeared on Sunday.

“I saw his harness was still in the basket; we realized he was gone,” Llewellyn said.

Llewellyn said someone broke in on Sunday evening while she was running errands. Rocky was the only missing thing.

Luckily, the red-nosed pit bull wasn’t gone for long.
