A dog named 'Diesal' taken from North Eastern Connecticut Council of Governments, or NECCOG, a Dayville animal shelter, has been found according a spokesperson from NECCOG and Connecticut State Police Troop D in Colchester.
The Neccog Animal Services officials took to Facebook on Sunday morning after the pit bull was stolen overnight when the shelter was broken into.
Officials wrote that the lock on the kennel was broken and removed.
In an updated Facebook post, NECCOG representatives wrote that "a Ballouville resident stated he took Diesel in last night from a young man that was at the fast food restaurant down the street from the shelter. We are investigating this whole incident."
