THE BRONX - A Parkchester boy with autism was reunited with his beloved dog Tuesday.

As News 12 reported, 8-year-old Dennis Ventura's Chihuahua mix, Toby, ran off last week after the apartment Ventura lives in flooded.

Ventura has autism, and family members say Toby helps him sleep and calms him down.

Tray Suazo says he found Toby when someone on the street was trying to sell him for $100.

Suazo says he bought the dog and returned it to Ventura and his family.
