The owners of two French bulldogs missing after an Avondale home burglary were reunited with their beloved pets Wednesday.

David Wilk and his husband Charlie Gurion were contacted by a family who saw the two dogs in Humboldt Park before the storm hit Tuesday, and took them in.

The family saw a post on Craigslist about the missing dogs, and called Wilk and Gurion.

The owners had received two phone calls of potential sightings in the Humboldt Park area Tuesday night, but when they went to search they could hardly see through rain and snow.

The couple had gone for coffee Tuesday morning and returned two hours later to find their front door broken into and two of their four dogs missing-- a 9-month-old French bulldog named Pierre and a 2-year-old French bulldog Rue, who is deaf.

Wilke and Gurion spent Wednesday morning posting flyers and speaking to residents in the search for their dogs.

The owners say they plan to microchip the dogs now that they have them back.
