Joy as stolen puppies reunited with owner just in time for Christmas Day
Nine Border Collie puppies and two Jack Russell dogs that were stolen from a farm in Killamarsh have been reunited with their owner just in time for Christmas Day.
Last week, South Yorkshire Police shared an appeal after the canines were stolen from a farm in Killamarsh Lane.
Unknown offenders broke into an outbuilding by knocking a hole through a wall before stealing nine five-week-old puppies and two female Jack Russell dogs.
This morning (Thursday, December 24) a spokesperson for the force said: “We've had some lovely news overnight that we wanted to share with you all and bring some festive cheer.
"We're delighted to report that both dogs and all the puppies have been returned to their owner, and they're all safe and well.
"While we can't know for sure it was the social media appeal that led to the dogs being returned home, we're always so grateful for your support sharing appeals like this.
