Stolen pug found in Bexley park and reunited with Kent owner

An adorable pug found wandering a local Bexley park has been reunited with her owner 65 miles away after a robbery attempt.

On February 24, a 72-year-old woman was walking her dog Dora near her home in Lydd, Kent when a man wearing a face mask approached her and the dog and started a conversation.

The man then sneakily detached the lead and ran off with the dog.

Then 11 days later, on Sunday, March 7, a member of the public reported to Bexleyheath Police station with a dog she had found roaming alone in a local park.

Officers from the station took the dog to a local vets to be checked over and scanned for any details.

The next day, officers contacted the owner and were able to return Dora the pug to her rightful owners.

Sadly, Met Police said the owner has now informed them that her other dog, is now reported to be missing in the Kent area.
