Volusia County deputies arrested the man on Wednesday who they say stole their red nose pit bull from a 7-year-old boy who was walking the dog Sunday morning.

Anthony Hill has been charged with grand theft after deputies say he took the dog, named Red, while boy was walking around the block Sunday at around 10:30 a.m. near the intersection of South Montgomery Street and West Taylor Road.

The family only had Red for three days before the incident. A neighbor who could no longer keep her with their newborn gave Red to them but since she lived just down the street, the family has known the dog since she was a puppy.

Red was reunited with her owners Wednesday, deputies said.
