DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton police say a stolen Boston Terrier is back home with its rightful owner.

Police say someone stole the dog from the backyard of a Thorpe Drive home late Tuesday night.

His name is ‘Ozzy Pawsborn Prince of Barkness’, but you can call him Oz for short.

Although Oz was returned, police are still looking for the suspect. She is described as a heavy set white woman in her 30s. She is believed to be a smoker.

The dog’s owner said she received a text claiming the person saw the suspect wearing a light blue coat and dark rim sunglasses, carrying the dog on Wilmington Avenue near Patterson Road.

A police report estimates the dog’s worth at $2,000.
