A sausage dog stolen in Woodville has been found safe and well in Loughborough.

Minnie the Dachshund was stolen while out on a walk with her owner in the evening on Sunday 11 April.

The victim was walking along Moira Road, near the New Inn pub, when she was approached by two men, who allegedly tripped her over, threatened her and stole her dog, a two-year-old Miniature Dachshund (sausage dog) named Minnie.

She was handed into a vet safe and unharmed in the Loughborough area on Wednesday 14 April.

The two men who stole Minnie are still wanted by police. The pair left the scene in a black Ford Mondeo (registration beginning YG60), along Moira Road in the direction of Albert Village just after 8.20pm.
