Police say the truck, with the chocolate lab named Penny inside, was stolen from Patty’s Eggnest. 

Penny, was found safe Saturday evening. The truck is still missing.

"Penny is wet and tired but now safely with us," owner Alison Murphy wrote around 5:30 p.m.

Murphy said the thieves used her credit card and the police now have security footage from the stores they went to. 

"Penny is the most important thing," Murphy wrote. "The rest is just details."

She shared a similar sentiment online when Penny first disappeared.

“We don’t care about the truck,” Murphy earlier wrote on Facebook. “But want to find our dog, Penny. She is 8 years old, has tags with our phone numbers and doesn't bark.”
