A bulldog, taken from its home Monday morning by a stranger, made a safe and happy return last night.

Arzoo’s owner, Nuvi Lally, says her beloved English bulldog was taken away and it was all caught on video.

Lally says she let Arzoo out into her backyard on Monday morning but panicked when she came out to find the side gate open and the dog missing.

“I drove around for half an hour, screaming and looking for him everywhere that he would go,” she said. “He’s not a very adventurous dog.”

Lally said they contacted the police and reported the incident.

After desperately searching, the owners spotted the dog in a car in the same neighbourhood. They say they only got Arzoo back after blocking the vehicle in the driveway and confronting the driver.

“The driver got out, he was not happy to see us obviously,” said Samraj Virk, Arzoo’s owner. “He said ‘are you the owners of the dog?’ And we said ‘yeah.’ He asked us how we found him and a bunch of other questions but we were able to get the dog out and he took off before we had any further conversations with him.”
