A Melbourne family is rejoicing after their stolen puppy was returned by the thieves who took her during a home invasion Monday.

The puppy, which came into the family only a week earlier as a pet for 4-year-old Maia, is an 8-week-old Labrador named Sasha, and she has a medical condition that needs care, the family told news outlets.

Sasha appeared to be in good health after her return, although family members said she has developed a new attraction to shoes since being away, the BBC reported.

Other items taken during the robbery, such as a laptop, iPad, and jewelry have not been returned.

The family told news outlets all over Australia they were devastated by losing Maia’s best friend, and were happy when they found that Sasha had been left in their backyard early Thursday morning.

“She’s been returned, we are so thankful,” father Ryan Hood said, The Australian reported. “We don’t know if they had a conscience or they got scared, we don’t care we are just thankful to have her home.”

Maia told The Australian she had missed the dog “this much,” opening her arms wide.

“I like playing with her,” she added.

Twitter users were glad the stolen puppy was returned and hoped the thieves would keep making things right.
