Talk to your friend and tell him you're concerned about doggie adjusting to leaving. Tell him that you want him to know that she is welcome back at your home and that if she has problems adjusting, they are NOT to give her away to anyone else or take her to a shelter, that you'd love to have her back.

It sounds like they like doggie and wanted to do what was best for her at the time and weren't just dumping her. I'd give her back but make it plain that you've grown to love her and she'll always be welcome at your house. It sounds like she's a nice dog and they've probably missed her. OTOH, if they've never even asked after her, then you might want to offer to keep her if they're not sure about taking her back.
