ORIGINAL STORY: One of two dogs stolen in Durham on Thanksgiving is back home
Unfortunately, more than a week later, the second pup, Chaddy, remained missing. Jenkins ramped up efforts to find her precious pet this week, distributing fliers offering a $5,000 reward for his return.
On Wednesday, Jenkins told ABC11 she got a call Tuesday night from a woman who said she had purchased Chaddy about a week ago. Then she saw his picture on the news and called Jenkins.
They set up a time and place to meet Wednesday at noon. Durham police officers and Durham County Sheriff's deputies were there to make sure things went smoothly and to scan Chaddy's microchip.
Now he's home!
The 7-year-old Yorkie is in need of a bath but is in overall good health.
Jenkins was waiting to turn on her tree lights until both dogs were back home, and now, her tree is on.
