There was a very happy ending to a story 11 News first brought you over the weekend. A Grand Junction man has been reunited with his missing dog.

Steve Miller says he received about a dozen calls after 11 News ran a story about his black lab Sasha, who he thought had been stolen from his truck during a baseball game.

Miller tells us a woman found Sasha wandering around and took her home to care for her, while she looked for the owner. She saw Miller's emotional plea to get Sasha back and brought her to him late Sunday night.

"This is about the best day of my life," said Miller. "She is man's best friend."

Miller says he did not get the woman's name, but wants to thank her for taking care of his dog and bringing her back to him. He says the woman did not accept the $100 reward he was offering for Sasha's safe return.

In a letter to 11 News he says, "For what it's worth, I'd like to let her know that as a result of her concern for the welfare of my dog, I'll be contributing my efforts to the stray animals of this community."

    I want to thank 11 news for letting us know that he got his dog back. Many times we just wonder what happened with many stories. So happy for him and Sasha that it turned out good.
