CHICAGO — A puppy stolen from an adoption center in the South Loop has been found more than a month after the theft.

The puppy, Smarties, was taken from an Anti-Cruelty Society adoption center inside PetSmart, 1101 S. Canal St., at the end of October.

Smarties was found on the street Thursday and taken in by Chicago Animal Care and Control. The city agency scanned Smarties’ microchip and returned her to the Anti-Cruelty Society on Friday.

Smarties, a 3-month-old Australian shepherd and hound mix, will have her health evaluated by the group’s vets. She’s not currently up for adoption.
