MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A newlywed couple who came home to find their house burglarized and their puppy missing are getting some much needed need good news. After four days, the Montgomery couple is being reunited with their little, white bundle of joy named Cane.

Gary and Stefanie Nelson had been married just six weeks when they discovered thousands of dollars in property stolen from their Robinson Hill Road home. Their dog was as long gone as the burglars.

Days went by and there was no word on the animal or his condition. That changed Monday afternoon when someone noticed a white dog wandering the side of the Southern Boulevard about 5 miles from the couples' home.

The good samaritan contacted the vet on Cane's tag and within a short time he was back in his owners' arms. Cane was tired and had lost some weight but was otherwise in good condition.

It took some time to get in contact with those who were holding Cane, but the Nelson's rushed to get him once they knew where he was.

Mr. Nelson snapped a picture of Cane, relaxing on the couples' couch at home. He said the dog hasn't left that spot, and he's "glad of it".

As for the robbers, those who were eating and drinking in the Nelson's home while robbing them, they still have not been located. If you have any information that could help police, call CrimeStoppers.
