Nottinghamshire Police were called at around 2.25pm yesterday (Thursday 14 November 2019) to a report of a burglary on Beck Hill Road in Woodthorpe, where the family dog, a cockapoo, was initially thought to have been taken.

Appeals for the missing dog were posted on social media with a great response from Woodthorpe and the surrounding communities. 

Officers were updated later that day, just before 9:10pm, that the dog had been located and is thought to have escaped after the offender left the door open.The dog and owners have now been reunited.

Inspector Chris Pearson, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Gedling, said: "It's fantastic news that the dog and owners have been reunited and we wanted to update and thank the community for coming together, sharing the appeals and ultimately finding the dog.

"To not only come home to a burgled house, but also find the beloved family pet missing must have been heartbreaking for the owners, so we were very happy to get this update and hear that the dog is back home and safe.

"Tackling burglary is a priority for us on the Neighbourhood Policing Team and we'd like to reassure people that reports such as these will be investigated and such actions will not be tolerated."
