Police reunited Azan the stolen husky with his Dandenong owner on Friday 12 August.
The Journal reported on Monday 8 August that a man approached Azan’s 49-year-old owner while he was walking two dogs along David Street, Dandenong, about 7.15pm on Thursday 4 August.
Police said the man was walking a labrador off-leash and asked the victim where he got his huskies.
The victim tried to walk away but the thief allegedly punched him to the left side of his face and pushed him into a garden bed.
He unclipped the harness from Azan and fled with the pooch, police said, his labrador in tow.
A tip-off to Crime Stoppers about the canine’s whereabouts alerted Greater Dandenong CIU detectives to an address in Dandenong.
They executed a warrant at the home about 9am on Friday and discovered Azan.
The dog was in good health and was happy to pose for the cameras after the reunion.
Police arrested an 18-year-old man who was assisting investigators with their inquiries.
