A 10-year old girl in San Jose who put up her piggy bank savings as a reward for her stolen dog has been reunited with her pet.

Marissa Mabanag’s dog was stolen during a burglary earlier this week at the family home, but it was later found safe, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The girl offered her piggy bank savings in conjunction with the $6,000 in reward money put together by San Jose Police, firefighter unions and a local councilman. It was unclear how much money was in the piggy bank.

The dog named Meeko, a shih tzu-Yorkie mix, was found at a Target store in Merced County, about 80 miles away. The woman who found the dog will receive the reward, the newspaper reported.
