RICHFIELD, Minn — After being stolen along with a car on Friday and listed as missing for several days, Vic the black lab mix is now safe at home.
A Facebook post shared by the Richfield Police Department says Vic was found when he approached a man in a St. Paul park Sunday night.
The wayward pup was reported to be "stinky and thirsty" when he was found, but after a bath he was otherwise in good health and good sprits.
Police said the stolen car was also found in St. Paul near Hamline University Saturday morning. Police said the Chevrolet Malibu was taken Friday with Vic and several valuables inside. The car had been left running in the parking lot of Richfield Liquor.
"Thank you to everyone as well as the Retrievers organization so very much for all your efforts in helping me get my buddy home to me," posted Lucas Albers, Vic's grateful human. "You really helped ease my mind with all the supportive messages and sharing of information to help aid in his recovery."
