DETROIT (WXYZ) - A brother and sister are overjoyed after being reunited with their 2-year-old Pomeranian after the dog was stolen from their car on Christmas Eve.

"It's a Christmas blessing," said Floyd Mitchell after he and his sister met up with their precious pet.

"We are overjoyed. Excited," he said. "Couldn't be happier."

On Monday night, "Brooklyn" the Pomeranian's photo appeared on 7 Action News at 11 p.m. after the dog was taken from a CVS Pharmacy parking lot on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit.

Floyd went in to the Pharmacy to pick up his father's medication.

Tuesday - on Christmas Day - a woman called 7 Action News and said she bought a dog that looked like the one on TV. She said she purchased the Pomeranian outside a gas station late Monday night for $700.

The caller also said the dog responded to the name she heard on TV: "Brooklyn." She felt she may have purchased the stolen dog.

The 7 Action News team brought them together and - sure enough - it turned out to be Brooklyn!

The dog ran to her owners and they were brought to tears with happiness as they held and cuddled her.

The dog's owners paid the promised reward of $2,000 and everyone agreed:  Brooklyn's return was a Christmas miracle.
