The search for a missing cockapoo prompted the posting of a £250 reward and even its own Facebook page - "Let's find Ralf and bring him home" and now the much loved dog is home safe and sound.

Zoe Kiely from Mannamead was heartbroken when eight-year-old Ralf ran off from a relative's home in Ivybridge on Monday 14 March.

The hunt for Ralf went viral on social media with a number of sightings. Zoe herself went out looking for her "soulmate" pooch every day and hasn't been able to sleep properly since.

But tonight she should sleep soundly as a farmer found the canine escapee sleeping in a barn in Ugborough and Zoe has been reunited with her faithful friend.

A heartbroken family is offering a cash reward to the person who finds their missing dog, Ralph.

The 8 year old light brown cockapoo, went missing in Ivybridge five days ago where he was being looked after by relatives.

Zoe Kiely, Ralph's owner who is 'desperate' to get him home, is not currently in the country. Meanwhile friends and family have put up a £250 reward for his safe return.

Ralph is wearing a red collar and is micro chipped. The family asks anyone who does find him to take him to their nearest rescue centre or vet so that the family can be contacted.
