A metro Detroit Uber driver has been reunited with her dog that was stolen in front of a store in Inkster on Opening Day.

Megan Nairne says her dog, Bruiser, was taken while on a walk with her significant other. They had stopped at Harrison Liquor Store in Inkster, while she was working on Opening Day at Comerica Park.

The dognapping was captured on video, which Nairne posted to Facebook.

A woman called 7 Action News saying she found the dog on the street. We were there when Nairne was reunited with bruiser.

Narine says she and her significant other, James, adopted the 9-year-old Bruiser after James' mother, Linda, passed away in April 2015. Bruiser was originally Linda's dog.

Nairne says Bruiser is very attached to James and will get depressed if he is not around.

James had stopped at the store during their walk to get Bruiser a snack, and left him outside because the store does not allow pets inside.

Nairne says they have filed a police report, but do not feel their case has been given the appropriate priority.
