A pet dog that had been missing for almost three weeks has been reunited with her owner, after being found over 100 miles from home.

Lizzie, the 9-month-old Patterdale terrier, was stolen from the farm where she lives on 27th April.

Her owner Alison Taylor was left distraught, and searched for her every day for more than two weeks.

Her husband then received a phonecall to say Lizzie had been found, but not near her Penrith home- she was found near Wigan.

A dog warden found her and as she was microchipped, the vet was able to locate her owners.

Apart from losing some weight picking up a few scratches, Lizzie is fit and well and is settled back in at home.

Mrs Taylor says that she had almost given up hope of ever finding her, and is over the moon to have her back home with the family.
