Missing dog returned

Posted: Updated:

We have a happy update to report. The owner, Bruce Yang, contacted us today to say his dog had been returned. Further details weren't available.

Tora the golden retriever is a sort of fan favorite at the 102nd Street Market in northeast Portland.

"He's a mascot in the store, so my neighbors know him," said store owner Bruce Yang.

Yang says the dog sleeps by his bed at night and helps him open the store in the morning.

"Everybody comes in here and gives a pet and some treats," Yang said.

At about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Yang let Tora out of the shop to do his business around the side of the market, and Tora never came back.

Last week, he showed all his regular customers surveillance video, hoping they will recognize the customers who came and went before Tora went missing.

You can't see much in the video, except Tora's tail wagging as he gets friendly with a man and a woman in an Oldsmobile.

Police said there isn't enough evidence to suggest the dog left in the car; the video is too dark to see inside the windows.
