Police Hold a Surprise Reunion for Family and Their Stolen Puppy (VIDEO)

The Templeton family had more than their valuables stolen when their Fort Worth, Texas home was robbed, they also lost their most precious possession: a 4-month-old puppy named Petey!

13 police officers worked to locate the stolen goods as well as the kidnapped pooch, tracing the items from a pawn shop to the seller’s address where they found the Templeton’s puppy.

After recovering Petey, the officers decided to plan a surprise for 10-year-old Julia Templeton’s birthday and asked the family if they could come to them to ask more follow-up questions.

When the police pulled up to the birthday party however, the Templetons were instead greeted by Petey, who after some trepidation was equally happy to be reunited.
