The dog's owner, Nguyen Tuan Thanh, tells Eyewitness News a family found him wandering along Harbor Boulevard. They contacted Thanh after seeing a Facebook post and returned the dog.
The pup, Lycan, went missing near the intersection of N. Jackson and West 11th streets.
Home security video showed the 3-month-old puppies running to a fence when they saw someone approaching.
One of those people suddenly reached over the fence, grabbed one of the dogs and took off running.
