Rosie Sanchez, alerted by a neighbor to the burglary in progress Wednesday, got home in time to see the culprit being led away by an animal-control officer, KHOU-TV, Houston, reported. She found rifled dog food, a puddle of urine underneath her dining room table and a stereo knocked over.
"It's just a mess," she said.
Her neighbors say the pit bull had been in the area for several days and they had been complaining about it, to no avail.
Sanchez owns a Chihuahua and a Yorkshire terrier. The pit bull was apparently eager to play, not fight.
The pit bull will be put up for adoption if its owner does not come forward.
