Dog stolen 5 years ago to be reunited with owner

HOUSTON (KHOU) — A dog stolen from his owner more than five years ago will finally get to go back home after a local couple found the animal.

"Pulling into the driveway, I saw him wandering in the road," said Stephen Collins. "I assumed he'd been a stray for at least a little while."

Collins and his wife, Allie, took the dog to a vet and found out he had a microchip. Turns out the little schnauzer was stolen from his owners who were visiting Houston from San Antonio.

"Supposedly someone just broke the window and took him out of the car," said Collins. "It's pretty sad."

But this story has a happy ending. The couple was able to reach the dog's new owner and they're planning a reunion for Saturday morning.

"I can't imagine what the last five years would've been like for him, to be stolen, who knows, it would be very interesting to hear what he had to say," Allie Collins said.

David McCary, the dog's owner, said his pet's real name is "Prince Henry."

"You can only imagine what it was like to get that call today," said McCary. "This just really shows that there are great citizens out there."

After missing for some five years, Prince Henry will finally make his way back home this weekend.

"It brought tears to your eyes and it's just the most warm, heartfelt moment you can have," McCary said.
