Boy caught sneaking into neighbor's garage to hug dog gets his own pooch

(INSIDE EDITION)- Remember the little boy captured on surveillance video sneaking into a neighbor's garage to hug the family's dog?

Nine-year-old Josh Breaux of Louisiana was missing his own pup that had died two years before. But he no longer has to love on his neighbor's pooch.

Josh has his own dog now, courtesy of his loving mom.

"His name is Drake and he's a black lab," the boy says, proudly introducing his new pet to Inside Edition.

Back in June, a neighbor was looking through security camera footage, and spotted Josh hopping off of his bike and sneaking into her garage. Once inside, he approached her dog Duchess, and gave her a hug, before running back out of the garage and jumping on his bike to head for home.
