A stolen puppy was returned to its family Sunday night.

Four-month-old Oso is a Chocolate Labrador.

Alex Mascarenas owns the puppy. She said Oso was taken from her front yard last Thursday.

She said her husband let the puppy use the bathroom in the front yard. Her husband went back in the house to get his shoes. About five minutes later, Mascarenas said someone took Oso.

She said she filed a police report, asked for help on Facebook and made fliers to find her puppy.

"We just ask whoever has him, we beg you to bring him home," she said.

The family said the they were reunited with their puppy after someone saw the story on KRDO Newschannel 13 Sunday night.
