SALT LAKE COUNTY (ABC4 News) – A story of a stolen puppy that captured the attention of many now has a happy ending.

Cookie, 2-month-old black and tan Cairn Terrier, was recently stolen from the Humane Society of Utah but found later thanks to police in Meridian Police Department in Idaho.

Cookie, now named Lucy, has forever home after she was adopted by Mark Miller Subaru employee Pete Phillbrook. The Phillbrook family met the puppy after she returned to Salt Lake City and fell in love.

Lucy now has an older sister named Abby who is also a Cairn Terrier.

Lucy’s adoption fee was covered by Mark Miller Subaru and Subaru of America through their community charity initiative Subaru Love Promise.

“The Subaru Love Promise is truly an incredible initiative,” says Mike Aguilar, director of Marketing for Mark Miller Subaru, “because we get to help turn horrible situations into something magical. Cookie’s destiny was unknown following her tragic disappearance, but now, with her return to Salt Lake City, her future is bright. I personally know the Philbrook family, and I know that this sweet 2-month-old puppy will live a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life. I’m so honored that Subaru helped make this possible!”
