A five month old puppy called Bobbie who was stolen alongside other things from a house in the Stretford area has now been returned to its owners.
Bobbie was stolen from the address on Hancock Street on March 28 at around 2.30am.
The Maltese cross Shih Tzu puppy was found on a street in the Withington area and taken to a vet where he was scanned and the owners were contacted.
GMP on Facebook thanked all that helped spread the word.
It was a happy ending, despite the worry and concern for Bobbie, who is now in the arms of his very happy and relieved family.
