Canadians rallied to find a stolen dog and bring her home safely

In a heartwarming show of solidarity, Canadians rallied over the weekend to help return a stolen dog to her home, and it seems that their efforts paid off because the happy doggo is now reunited with her owner.

On Sunday, a Calgary resident posted a plea to Facebook, asking locals to keep an eye out for his dog, Sensi.

"Someone just stole my dog from outside Safeway on 4th Street and 26ave," the resident wrote. "Please help me get my dog back she's very distinct [sic] looking."

The post was shared hundreds of times, with some Canadians even posting it to other social media platforms to boost its reach.

Unfortunately, Sensi wasn't micro-chipped, so it didn't seem likely that the pup would be reunited with her owner — but that didn't stop Canadians from doing their best to find her.

Some people even started a GoFundMe page to raise enough funds to convince the dognapper to give her back.

Luckily, a Calgary transit driver ultimately spotted Sensi, and Constable Chris Martin with the Calgary Police confirmed that the dog was safely returned to her owner.

The dognapper was arrested and charges are pending.

In the aftermath of the incident, Sensi's owner shared a sweet snap of the pup resting by the fireplace at home, looking very pleased to be back in familiar territory.

"Thank you everyone for your help," the Calgary resident said. "Sensi has been returned and the thief who stole her will be charged."

Canadians are congratulating the pair on being back together, expressing their relief that Sensi made it home safely.

"That must have been such a horrific feeling!" one person wrote on Facebook. "Super stoked you got her back!"

"Oh thank goodness," another person wrote. "Welcome home Sensi, brave girl."
