JAMESTOWN, N.C. -- A dog that was stolen from a Jamestown home back in 2011 returned home on Wednesday.

Zorro, a 170-pound Great Dane, was stolen during a home invasion on Nov. 11, 2011. Marcie Trogdon told FOX8 back in 2011 someone entered the home through an unlocked door and stole the dog.

"A laptop or a TV can be replaced. Zorro is like a family member. All my kids are grown, so he's my baby," Trogdon said in 2011.

Then, on Wednesday night, Zorro showed up at her house.

Trogdon said her neighbor alerted her to the large dog outside of her door.

"He was like 'Do you know who's dog this is?' And I said, 'what dog?' and about that time Zorro comes running around the corner and I said 'Oh my God! That's Zorro!" Trogdon said.

Zorro is overweight and has ringworm but otherwise seems healthy and happy.

Trogdon thinks someone stole her dog and brought him back when his care became too expensive.
