PITTSBURGH (AP) — A wiener dog statue kidnapped from in front of a Pittsburgh car repair shop has been returned — albeit with a broken paw — after some teens say they saw it at a party over the weekend.

Forbes Auto Body owner Ed D'Angelo says he's not interested in pressing charges now that the 200-pound dog, one of two dog statues that stand "guard" outside his shop, has been returned.

The dogs are the work of James Simon, an artist who lives across the street from D'Angelo's shop in the city's Uptown neighborhood.

D'Angelo says the statues are just some of the artwork used to spruce up a neighborhood trying to rebound and rid itself of drug trafficking and prostitution.

Simon says of the theft, "You feel bad when one person disrespects a good thing that's happening."
