BOSTON (CBS) – A dog named ‘Belichick’ that was stolen outside the Trader Joe’s on Boylston Street has been found.

Police say the 4-year-old puggle’s owner Craig Pentland had tied him up outside the store around 7 p.m. Monday and went inside for about 10 minutes.

When he came out, Belichick was gone.

Craig tells WBZ that Belichick made it home safe Tuesday evening.

Pentland told police that no one in the area reported seeing the dog being taken and a review of surveillance footage at area businesses did not turn up any sign of him.

The dog had a tag with his name on it and he is microchipped.

Pentland put up posters around the store and set up a Facebook page to try and find his dog.

    I pray the owner has his little dog returned. Why do people have to steal? If you want a dog that badly, visit an animal shelter and give a home to one who doesn’t already have one. I hope the dog isn’t being abused by whoever took him.

    Leaving a pet unattended and available for anyone to steal is just plain stupid! If the pet is found, it should be taken from it’s present owner permanently.
