Puppy snatched from Mesquite yard reunited with family


MESQUITE, Texas (KXAN) — A puppy stolen from a fenced-in yard in a Dallas suburb has been reunited with its owners, and police are working to track down the people who took it in the first place. 

The video, obtained by NBC affiliate KXAS, was posted and shared widely on social media, which police say helped them recover the 10-week-old French Mastiff named Chipper. In the video, a man reaches over a fence to grab the puppy before he and another man drive off in a Cadillac.

The Dallas Morning News reported it happened around 2:20 p.m. Saturday on Milam Road, about 15 miles southeast of downtown.
