It's safe to say that dogs are one of the world's most popular pets.

These lovable and loyal companions make the perfect household pets, and it also helps that they’re so damn cute.

They are truly man's best friend...

Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the entire sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.

In fact, it's basically what unites the internet...

There’s one thing it seems we can all agree on – our canine pals are too good for this world.

Dogs are known and loved for their loyalty...

Because let’s face it, dogs are the most loyal pet you can have.

They are part of the family.

From the thumping of paws as they excitedly run to greet you when you return home, to relaxing evenings with your pup sprawled out on the couch next to you, they really are our best buddies.

Once you become a dog-parent, there's no going back...

The thought of it alone is pretty unbearable.

One woman has finally been reunited with her beloved dog...

After she claimed the Corgi was stolen by the elderly couple who was dog-sitting for her.

Carmen Pham asked the couple to look after Haku, her 4-year-old Welsh Corgi...

...While she went away for 2 weeks.

When she returned and went to pick the dog up, they refused to give him to her.

This went on for months with emotional appeals and police intervention.

She even enlisted the help of a pet detective...

But thankfully, Haku was finally given back to his rightful owner on Tuesday afternoon.

This was the first time Ms. Pham had seen Haku in 6 months.

So she was obviously emotional once they were reunited. She has big plans in store to celebrate Haku's return.

She told Nine News...

"I'm so happy. It was her birthday yesterday so we want to do a big party tonight."

Although the man who stole the dog insists it was all a big misunderstanding.

"They said I could keep the dog in the middle of May," he said. "It just got all out of hand... the dog is now handed back- that's it, full stop."

The dog was taken to Surfers Paradise police station...

And was picked up by Ms. Pham just after 4 pm.

A spokesperson for Queensland Police reported that no charges have been made.

Ms. Pham appealed to track down her dog earlier this July.

After the couple responsible for stealing Haku stopped responding to her messages...

She used social media to get support for her case and got the police involved.

She used the Missing & Stolen Pets QLD Facebook page to post her plea.

And was shared more than 745 times by outraged pet-lovers.

Kirilly Cull, from the Missing & Stolen Pets QLD Facebook page, said: "The police has found the person who 'stole Haku.'"

"He has now gone into hiding," she said.

The man who stole Haku still insists he thought Ms. Pham had given him the dog to keep.

However, copies of all conversations between the man and Ms. Pham prove that wasn't the case.

"Hand Haku into a vet, pound or police. Keeping an animal that is legally not yours is deemed under Australian law 'theft of property,'" they wrote, all in capital letters.

Clearly it worked. Keep scrolling for some seriously adorable animal news...
