If dogs could talk, it's likely a 2-year-old Yorshire Terrier mix stolen from an Atlanta animal shelter would have a tale to tell.
The adopted dog was taken from Fulton County Animal Services earlier this week before her forever family arrived to take her home.
The dog was returned unharmed by one of the suspects Friday, Atlanta police posted on Facebook.
The suspects, a young man and a woman, spent about 10 minute in Fulton County Animal Services on Feb. 11 before they made off with the Yorkie hidden in a large purse.
