SAN JOSE, Calif. - There's a happy ending for a Northern California girl who offered her piggy bank savings for the return of her stolen puppy.

Ten-year-old Marissa Mabanag's dog was stolen during a burglary this week at her San Jose home.

The girl offered the contents of her piggy bank to boost the $6,000 in reward money gathered by San Jose police and firefighters unions and Councilman Ash Kalra.

The San Francisco Chronicle (bit.ly/SHlZV1) says her dog Meeko, a shih tzu-Yorkie mix, was found Wednesday in a Target store parking lot 80 miles away in Merced County.

Police union president Jim Unland says Blanca Del Real, the woman who found the puppy at the Los Banos Target store parking lot, will receive the $6,000 reward.
