Four year old Lola who is a miniature dachshund is back home.
Police have helped reunite a stolen dog to her relieved owners in Stanton under Bardon.
Four year old Lola who is a miniature dachshund was reported stolen at the end of January.
She had given birth to puppies just weeks before being stolen.
Police found Lola at a property in Coalville. No arrest have been made and enquiries are ongoing.
Owner Lauren said: “Only a couple of days before I had been saying that I had given up hope. I didn’t think I was going to see her again.
“When we realised Lola had been found, we were just all screaming and the kids were crying. It was joy and just utter shock
“When Lola came home and was reunited with her puppies, she was screaming and crying. That was Lola showing how happy she was. She just wants to be constantly near us now.”
Lauren added: “It’s thanks to members of the public who helped provide information and contacted the police and then the officers helping to get Lola back. If we hadn’t have had such a great team, we wouldn’t have Lola back. Having her microchipped meant we could then easily identify Lola as mine.”
PC O’Hara said: “Acting on the information received and then realising we had found Lola was fantastic. It was wonderful to finally be able to reunite Lola with her owner. Our thanks go to members of the public who worked with us providing information helping us reach this happy ending.
No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing into the report of the theft.
