"Thank you so much to this community and to all of his supporters for everything you have done to make this happen. Whoever had him knew they were on borrowed time and gave up," the post said. "We'll update more tomorrow. Tonight is for relief and for snuggling."

Police said Thursdaythe gray and white pit bull was taken between 9 a.m. and 5:20 p.m. Wednesday from his home in the 200 block of W. 27th Street.

The owner told police it is unclear as to whether additional property was taken. A GoFundMe page raised more than $8,155 as of Thursday for reward money for information on Knox. Several posts to the fundraising page asked that if the dog was returned, to forward their donations to area animal rescues.

The dog's owner did not immediately respond for a request for comment.
