Owner reunited with stolen dog
ONE of three missing dogs, stolen during a burglary in Barrow Gurney, has been reunited with its owners.
The black and white male lurcher was taken in by a family who found him wandering the streets near Frenchay Hospital in a poor condition.
They took him to a vet and the dog's microchip meant he could be returned to his owners.
Two dogs are still missing after the theft, which took place overnight between December 6 and 7 from kennels in Felton on the A38, not far south of the junction with Dial Lane.

Owner Sophia Wiltshire, 29, was delighted to be reunited with Bear, a three-year-old black and white lurcher cross.
She told The Post: "We were so happy to see him again – but it was a mixture of emotions because of the state he was in.
"He was half his original body weight – which had dropped from 42kg to 26kg – and has lots of sores and scratches all over his body."
The other two dogs still missing are Yogi, a three-year-old white and tan Jack Russell/fox terrier cross breed and Peggy, a six-year-old greyish-coloured whippet/lurcher bitch.
Anyone who has seen the other dogs should call the police on 101.
