Buttercup the pug, who was stolen from a boarding kennel near Bishop's Stortford, has been found after almost four months.

The four-year-old dog was found wandering in Saffron Walden and taken to a vet in the town.

Buttercup was snatched during a Sunday fun day for Mutts in Distress, the animal rescue charity based at Normandale Kennels in New Barn Lane, Little Hallingbury. She was taken from her kennel on May 26 just before 6.30pm. Her safe return was revealed on Friday (September 20).

Buttercup is listed on microchip service PETPLUS and was marked as 'stolen' after the incident, which sparked a widespread social media campaign for her safe return, including a dedicated Facebook page.

Mutts in Distress chief Pat Clark told the charity's followers on Facebook: "She was apparently found wandering along the road and handed into a vet. The microchip did the rest."
