Only on 12: Pit bull stolen in Tremont reunited with owner

Posted: Updated:
TREMONT -

A dog has been reunited with her owner after a man allegedly took it.

Jonathan Rosario's 2-year-old pit bull husky mix went missing on July 28 when a man on surveillance video appeared to untie her outside of Rosario's workplace.

Rosario posted a photo of Selina on Instagram, and a woman from the Pet Receiving Center on Fordham Road commented on the post, saying that she'd been dropped off with them.

"They said the guy who took the dog was actually the one who returned the dog, and he said he only took the dog because he saw it alone in the tree by itself," Rosario says.

He says he just started cutting hair at Braulio Barbershop on Park Avenue in Tremont, and that Selina was getting upset being away from him. Rosario decided to bring her to work, tying her to a tree outside.
