Rachel Avery and Jag were reunited at the Philadelphia airport by all places.
Surveillance video from a local business shows Jag running around the neighborhood before several men in a black SUV grabbed him from his porch and drove away.
Incredibly, days later, Avery received a call from someone in Philadelphia who had the dog, claimed not to have stolen it, and promised to hand it over if she did not file charges.
"When I heard he was in Philadelphia, it was incredible," Avery said. "I was in shock that a dog can be taken so quickly and then transported to another state, but here he is, snoring behind me."

Jag's owner says she's grateful to law enforcement, who took her dog's theft very seriously, and to all members of her community who gathered around her to help get Jag back.
There has been a rash with thefts of French bulldogs in the area, a breed that can be sold at a high value.
In December, a man was attacked and his French bulldog stolen after he was towed about 200 feet by the suspects' car in West Hollywood.
Last year, several French bulldogs belonging to Lady Gaga were stolen when her dogwalker was shot. Five people were later arrested.
