Ruby's owner reported the theft to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. Knowing just how important it was to find Ruby, they quickly began their hunt for the missing pup.

Fortunately, their hard work paid off and they were able to find Ruby, a little chocolate brown Labrador puppy. But that isn't the end of the story.

The best bit is the reunion between pup and owner.

Special delivery

The police decided to make a surprise delivery to Ruby's owner.

They knocked at the owner's house and when she opened the door, her sheer joy at seeing Ruby will make anyone smile.

Happy ending

She takes the dog from the policeman and lifts her in the air and then gives her a huge hug. Ruby looks delighted to be home too as she wags her tail excitedly and doesn't seem to mind all the cuddles she gets. Ruby definitely knew that she was home safe again.

Here's the wonderfully happy reunion:
