Parent and pup are reunited.
Sugar Bear, the red-nose pit bull, went missing Nov. 21 from the Edgewood neighborhood.
But a good neighbor found her near some railroad tracks in Decatur, took her in and cared for her for a week when she saw a flier learned Sugar Bear already had a home.
"Meredith, the young woman who found her, had fallen in love with Sugar Bear," owner Betty Sosnin told East Atlanta Patch. " She gave the reward money to a pit bull rescue organization and has made plans to foster a pit bull.
Sosin said she and her son, Mike Kashani, worried about their beloved Sugar Bear.
"Mike and I had visions of Sugar Bear cold and starving, but she actually had only one night on the street, which may have been the time of her life, Sosnin said. "The other seven she spent curled up in Meredith's rather posh apartment. She's now been [micro]chipped and given a clean bill of health."
