Rudy was on a leash during the burglary. When his owners came home, they untied him and Rudy immediately tracked down the stolen items.
''He was just sniffing constantly on the ground, and there it was, my items," said Rudy's owner Robert Justice.
The burglars returned to retrieve their loot, but family members saw them and got their license number.
Police tracked down and arrested the suspects, plus a number of accomplices.
