The family told local media they were "devastated" at the loss of their four-year-old daughter's "best friend." They even appeared on local television, appealing for information to track the stolen dog down.
"We're not worried about the material things, we just want the puppy back," Ryan Hood said.
Then, on Thursday, a happy surprise as the adorable pup was spotted in their backyard.
"We think that whoever took her either has a conscience or got scared and just dropped her over the fence ... we don't care to be honest, we're just glad to have her back," Mr Hood told Channel Nine.
Victoria Police said Sasha was "overwhelmed with love and play time" when she was finally united with her tiny human.
Victoria Police stated in a press release that while the family was "rejoicing" after Sasha's return, the investigation into the burglary would remain open till the other stolen items were tracked down.
