A PUPPY taken from the back garden of a house has been found unharmed and returned to its owners.

Bella, a four-month-old Chug, disappeared from Woodhouse Walk in Keighley on Sunday evening.

Busters Animal SOS Team, which helps locate missing and stolen pets, issued an appeal for information.

Bella was discovered on Tuesday night, in a bag dumped over a wall at Sutton-in-Craven.

"She was shaken but thankfully unharmed," said a spokesperson for Busters Animal SOS Team.

"Bella is now back safely with her ecstatic owners. The family would like to thank the couple that found her in their garden and acted quickly to raise the alarm."

The family also thanks the team and members of the public for their help.

Anyone with information about the theft should contact West Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting crime reference 554395.
