Police in Cheshire believe they may have located five show dogs that were stolen from their home in East Yorkshire last week.
A police spokesman said that a jogger near Warrington found five chihuahuas abandoned down a dirt track and took the dogs home, where a visiting friend told him about a police Facebook appeal for the missing Yorkshire show dogs.
Once identification has been confirmed the dogs will be returned to their rightful owners.
Among the dogs taken last week is a winner of Best Puppy in Breed at this year's Crufts championship, under her show name 'Made of Candy'.
