Stolen spaniel returned to rightful owners after being bought at boot sale

A stolen spaniel has been returned to its rightful owners after being bought for £150 at a boot sale.

On July 31, Laura Wonnacott went to the dog kennel only to find Bisto had disappeared.

The only thing that had been left behind was a collar which was lying on the lawn.

But just days later, the spaniel was spotted at a boot sale by a woman in Worksop, Notts.

This was 30 miles from her Lincoln home, reports Mirror Online.

Laura, 27, said: “Bisto was chained to a post and looking sad. She stroked her and a man said she could have her for £150.”

The lady bought Bisto and, for two weeks, the 10-year-old dog lived with her family in Rotherham as “Molly”.

Meanwhile, Laura and her sister Abi, 26, had put posts on social media about Bisto and offered a reward.

Laura said: “As time went on we lost hope and thought we might never see Bisto again.”

But the father of Bisto’s new owner saw the Facebook posts and on Sunday, the woman contacted Laura.

Laura said: “Abi took the call, and she burst into tears. The lady sent photos to confirm it was Bisto. Abi was so overwhelmed I took the rest of the call and agreed to meet immediately.”

They met up midway between their homes, and Bisto was absolutely overjoyed to see Laura and Abi again.

Laura said: “Bisto is in high spirits. She was so happy to be back in the garden, her tail hasn’t stopped wagging. She has had plenty of treats and lots of cuddles.”
