Beloved "Tiny" Returned Home After Story Airs

DAYTON -- A beloved dog stolen out of his backyard, is now home.

We first told you about "Tiny" the missing white poodle in our evening newscasts, and an hour after the story aired, he was returned home.

"This little dog has been my lifeline, he is my little love," said Marie Cunningham. "With the broadcast and everything and good people that brought him home, I thank all of you, I thank all of you for being so kind to help bring my little dog home to me."

Tiny was dog-napped Wednesday afternoon. The 9-year-old white poodle was outside in the fenced in backyard when someone broke the lock on the fence, and took him.

"I think he's a very bad person that's very cruel to do to anyone to take somebody's loved family member right out of their yard," said Cunningham.

Turns out, whoever took Tiny sold him to someone down the street for $40.

Luckily, a neighbor knew that Marie was missing her beloved furry friend.

"They seen it on the news," said Cunningham. "And she knew where he belonged and she brought him home."

And now that he's back by her side, Marie has a new found hope.

"That a miracle had happened, that there is miracles," said Cunningham, with a laugh.

She offered to give the man who bought Tiny $40, but he declined.

The dog napping happened Wednesday afternoon. Cunningham said someone stole Tiny,  her 9-year-old white toy poodle from her fenced-in yard on Hamilton Avenue. 

She said someone broke into her locked gate and nabbed him. 
 
"I need him.  He's like my child.  You have stole my kid when you took my dog," she cried.
     
Cunningham has terminal ovarian  and breast cancer. She  said she needs Tiny by her side to fight  through her illness.
 
"That little dog has been my life line." 
 
Marie and her husband searched her east side neighborhood without any luck.  Tiny was wearing a red collar and weighs in at 20 pounds.
    
Cunningham said she will offer a reward for his safe return.
 
"No questions asked.  I won't call the law.  You want money?  I'll pay you.  I ain't got much,  but I'll pay you." 

Anyone with information about Tiny, please call our newsroom at  (937) 262- 1400.
