NORTH TEXAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - Melissa Miller was still watching the news report, when the phone calls began.

“They came one after the other,” she said.

At least half a dozen TV viewers, who’d watched her story, called to say they recognized the three month old English bulldog, stolen from the cab of her family’s pickup truck Friday.

Monday night, Miller told CBS11, she bought the puppy, she’d named Kyndal, to help her cope with the death of her mother, one year ago that night.

“It’s the darkest time of my life,” she told us Monday.  “The happiness in her is what keeps me going.”

Viewer tips lead Miller to a Facebook page, where a man had posted a picture of the puppy he’d just bought for his daughter.

“There was a little chipped nail polish in the picture and I knew,” said Miller, who’d painted Kyndal’s toes pink before the theft.

By three o’clock Tuesday morning, Fort Worth police had the puppy back in Miller’s arms.

“I’m really thankful and excited and happy,” said Miller.

After questioning the man who bought Kyndal off Craigslist, investigators have now identified a person of interest in the puppy’s theft.

The Miller family had offered a $5,000 reward for help finding their puppy, but they say, the viewer responsible turned it down.

“She said, ‘I don’t want your money, I just want you to get your pup back,’ said Miller.
