With a new week comes good news. Bentley is home!

A Northwest Jacksonville family's young Pitbull was stolen - along with other items from her home - after it was burglarized on Friday, she tells First Coast News.

Benita Claridy said thieves left her door wide open, took all over her televisions and left her house in a wreck. That's all besides taking her dog, Bentley.

"They took his collar off," she says. "They left his bowl, the left his food but they took him; the whole cage."

But on Monday, Claridy got a call from a private number and a woman on the other end told her to meet her at a veterinarian clinic to pick up Bentley.

When the family arrived, they saw Bentley, cage and all, and the woman. 

Bentley is about four or five months old. She's friends to Claridy and her husband's children: an 11-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son.

Claridy's 11-year-old took Bentley from the vet's office and rushed to the car, locking the doors and putting up the windows. She's ecstatic.
