Family to reunite with dog stolen years ago in Ft. Worth

Posted: Updated:

A dog stolen years ago in Fort Worth will soon be reunited with her family.

The dog, named Molly, came to the Humane Society of North Texas last week as a stray. The dog didn't always run wild. About four years ago, she had been stolen from her owner Joyce Green.

Green now lives in Kansas, and never expected to see Molly again.

"I said, 'Oh my god! I can't believe you found my baby,'" Green said in a telephone interview.

Luckily, Molly had a chip, which led the Humane Society to her thrilled owner. The organization was just as happy to find the dog's home.

"It was so exciting to talk to Joyce to tell her Molly was safe and sound and will be back soon," Shelly Meeks, Humane Society of North Texas, said. "I love that part of the job." 

One of the Humane Society's staffers will personally take Molly to her family in Kansas.

Green is especially excited about getting Molly back so she can reunite the dog with her 7-year-old autistic son, Trent. She told us FOX 4 that although Trent was only three when they lost Molly, he still remembers her. Green says the two had a special bond.

"He was her best friend. They did everything together," Green said. "They swam together, they slept together. She would sit right in front of his high chair when he ate and he would feed her. They were inseparable."
