A Fowler family has been reunited with their missing dog.

Their home was broken into last week and they believe that's when their 85 pound boxer named "Patton" was stolen. They finally got a call today from someone who says they found Patton in an orchard near Sanger on Monday.

Now owner Tish Standley says she is excited to have Patton back home. "Just all the reaction of the support of the community --our family and friends who are out there helping us put up flyers and putting it on their car. That's just an amazing feeling. The silver lining in all the ugliness and then to top it all off we still were blessed to be able to have him come home so we're just so elated."

The family shared photos on Facebook and offered a $500 reward in exchange for Patton's return.
