HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A dog reported stolen from the Hawaiian Humane Society has been returned.

The Humane Society says 'Keoni' was taken from the Adoptions Department just after it opened Wednesday.

Early Friday morning the Humane Society says they received a call from a woman who says Keoni Jr. followed a friend of her's home. The Humane society sent an officer to the home and brought the dog back to the shelter.

Keoni Jr. is the shelter star of the upcoming television public service awareness ad set to air in November.
