Granite State Dog Recovery is reporting two puppies originally thought to have escaped their fenced-in yard in Pepperell on Sunday and now thought to have been stolen have been recovered.
A 4 1/2-month-old male Rottweiler named Jack (above) was recovered today in Hudson, N.H., and brought to the Kodiak Veterinary Hospital. Workers there recognized him right away as the stolen dog plastered on Facebook and called his family.
The other dog, Rosie, was recovered by Burlington Police Monday.
The 8 1/2-month-old Rottweiler mix (left) was found wandering the fifth-floor hallway of the Marriot Hotel in Burlington. When the Burlington Police picked up the dog and tweeted out the news, someone alerted Granite State Dog Recovery and she was returned to her family, which includes two small children.
One of them, Ayva Rose Parsons, 8, is a survivor of childhood leukemia.
The Marriott does not have security cameras on their side doors and it is thought that whoever dumped Rosie there brought her in via the stairwell (no cameras there, either) as security video did not pick up anything on the elevators, according to Beth Corr, a spokeswoman for Granite State.
