Deaf puppy returned to Timonium couple after burglary

A deaf puppy taken in a burglary last month has been returned to its owners, police said.

Baltimore County police Corp. John Wachter confirmed that Thor, a deaf white pit bull whose ears fold above his head, had been returned to couple Mike Lenhart and Anna Hiken on Tuesday. Thor was taken from his crate and stolen from their home in the 2400 block of Chetwood Circle on March 13, along with a 55-inch flat screen television, a PlayStation 3, a MacBook Pro and other electronics, police said.

Wachter declined to comment further, but previously told the Baltimore Sun police believed the suspect or suspects entered the couple's apartment through their rear sliding glass door sometime between 3:45 p.m. and 11:27 p.m. He said the investigation into the burglary is ongoing, and he would likely have more information in the coming days.

The couple also started a page called "help find thor!!" with the goal of raising a $1,000 reward for Thor's safe return. As of Tuesday afternoon, they had raised $1,270, according to the website.

Lenhart or Hiken could not immediately be reached for comment.
