Hero Dog Found in NJ, Chased Burglar from New City Home
NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP/1010 WINS) -- A 1-year-old pit bull mix has been found after she apparently chased an intruder from her family's New City home on Tuesday.
Kola - a sick 1-year-old black pit bull mix - was found in New Jersey, its owner Mitch Rosen said.
Yesterday a woman found Kola tied to a pole at a Costco and then took her to an animal shelter. Rosen later identified her and took her home.
Rosen said he and his wife entered their home around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and noticed that a window was broken. They also noticed muddy footprints in the house and that Kola was gone.
It appears that the dog chased the intruder out of the house before anything was stolen from the New City home.
Rosen and his family rescued Kola earlier this year after she was seized from a dog-fighting ring in Yonkers.
