Stolen pet

The family who said they believed their dog had been stolen is now reunited with their favorite canine.

Jay Yano said he was convinced someone stole Macho from the Kalihi shop where he works.

Tuesday night, the family got an anonymous call about a man walking Macho in Leeward Oahu near the Waianae Boat Harbor.  The person recognized Macho from Facebook and the KITV story.

The person gave such a good description of the man with Macho and they were found.

The family says Macho had a few cuts and was tired and hungry, but was okay.  He was scared to eat when he got home.

The children are so happy that Macho was able to come home for the holidays!

The family was dealing with a December tragedy for the second year in a row.  Last year, the family truck almost got stolen with the family's 9-year-old daughter.  She was rescued by her 11-year-old brother.
