Dogs found

We're happy to report that members of a New Jersey family have been reunited with their two missing dogs.

The young chocolate labs were stolen from the back of a vehicle in Newport this month while the owners were visiting a service station.

The owners also have a camp in Sangerville, and that's where one of the dogs was found running in a field.

It was returned by a neighbor and now the second dog has also been found.

According to the Bangor daily, the owner found that second dog hanging around a camp on Saturday and brought it home.

She suspects the thieves dumped them in the area after the story generated so many headlines in the local media.
