MEDFORD - A pug believed to have been stolen from a Medford backyard has been found.

Laura Baxter says someone stole 4-year-old Bandit from her backyard on Middle Island Avenue one week ago today.

Bandit was turned in to Selden Animal Hospital and reunited with the Baxter family yesterday.

Baxter says she believes the thief turned in the pug after seeing the story on News 12.
