Paris reunited after 2 years
A STOLEN chihuahua has been reunited with her owner two years after being taken.
Burglars broke into a Gorse Hill address in October 2019 and took the female pet along with some household items.
Despite their best efforts, Wiltshire Police could not find the stolen dog.
Then suddenly, earlier this month, the original owner received a letter from the UK pet microchip registration and database service Petlog telling her that someone was trying to change ownership of her dog.
Officers then reopened the case and made enquiries which led them to find the dog at an address in Buckingham – with a new owner.
She was being cared for by a woman whose daughter had bought the animal from a pet shop in London in December 2019. The chihuahua was fit and well, but pregnant.
The legal owner and the pet shop customer discussed the best solution to this situation with the police, which was tricky as the woman in Buckingham had bought the dog on good faith and not known it had been stolen.
