Woman reunited with stolen service dogs: 'It's a happy reunion'

Crystal Decker's service dogs, Coco and Princess, returned at the Oregon Humane Society - KATU image taken January 8, 2018

Two stolen service dogs were reunited with their owners on Monday, just over a week since someone stole them from their Northeast Portland, Ore., home.

Crystal Decker tells KATU News her two dogs - Coco and Princess – help her with her PTSD and anxiety.

Someone burglarized her home on New Year’s Eve, taking the dogs along with some clothing, prescriptions, Christmas gifts, phones, and other items.

“They even stole my nightlight,” she said. “But they left a full bag of dog food. They left the puppy pads, the dog dish.”

Nearly a week later, she got word that her dogs had turned up at Multnomah County Animal Services.

The dogs instantly started greeting an overjoyed Crystal with excited yips and licks.

"Thank you to whoever found my dogs," she said. "They look healthy... it's a happy reunion."

No word on whether a suspect has been found in the burglary.
