A Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Tigan has been reunited with her owners more than two years after she was stolen in July 2004.
The eight-year-old was eventually handed in to Battersea Dogs’ Home after she was found wandering the streets in Vauxhall, south London. Her owner, Susan Pittman said she spent hours scouring the neighbourhood in an attempt to track down her beloved pet. She also put up appeal posters and went out with the local dog warden but without any success.
But two years later, Tigan was taken to the Battersea rescue centre and, being micro-chipped, was scanned and soon reunited with her owners. Mrs Pittman, who arrived at the dogs home within hours of the call, said: "We're so happy to have our girl back, we just can't wait to get her home".
