The owner of a dog who went missing Tuesday after a robbery suspect forced his way into her home just called KHQ to notify us that the dog has been found safe. 

Brenda Tonolini says Abby the English Setter was found in an alley in north Spokane and has been returned to her. She says Abby is in good shape, and is happy to be home. 

Abby went missing Tuesday night shortly after two men robbed the Rite Aid near Division and Rowan. After a short police pursuit, one of the suspects, Eric Reisen, took off on foot and eventually forced his way into Tonolini's house. Police say Reisen attempted to take Tonolini hostage and during that confrontation, Abby the dog took off from the house. 

Reisen was arrested shortly after, and his suspected accomplice, Thomas Sweeney, later turned himself in.
