PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A missing service dog a Pearl family had feared stolen has been returned.

Anya is a 7 month old therapy dog for two year old Emily Thomas who has cerebral palsy.

Friday evening the dog was stolen out of the backyard.

The Thomas family called 3 On Your Side for help.

After our story aired Sunday night, a Pearl viewer recognized the dog.

The good Samaritan had grabbed Anya from a group of children in a Pearl neighborhood who admitted to taking the dog from the backyard.

The viewer kept the German Shepherd safe while trying to look for its owners.

Our story helped her find the Thomas family.

The dog's owners say Anya is home and is being spoiled.
