Stolen police puppy found

A 12-week-old puppy training to be a police dog which was stolen from a back garden has been found "safe and well", police have said.

Xamm, a black German Shepherd, was taken from the house of her puppy walker ‘foster owner’ in Stourbridge, West Midlands, on 16th July.

Police said she was found at an address at Lye, Stourbridge, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

They said their inquiries were continuing into her disappearance.

Margaret Nawrockyi, Secretary of Dog Theft Action commented: ‘This case highlights the worrying fact that any dog or owner can become a victim of dog theft. Fortunately this little girl has been reunited with her puppy walker and hopefully a thorough investigation will reveal exactly how she was taken and later recovered from another address.

‘Dog Theft Action encourages all dog owners to be constantly on their guard in order to avoid becoming a victim of dog theft. Information covering this and related issues is available on our website
