A 6-week-old Shih Tzu puppy is back with her owners after being stolen in December from a Cleveland County kennel.

On December 17, someone took the dog from Puppy Love Kennels in Noble. Two weeks later, the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office asked people to be on the lookout for the snatched Shih Tzu.

Deputies later received an anonymous call, which led them to the puppy and a suspect. The dog was returned to her owner, who said the puppy is in good health.

Deputies say charges will be filed against the suspect. That person's name has not been released.
