Missing dog Harvey the Shih Tzu from Foots Cray found 18 miles away in Essex
A PREGNANT Foots Cray woman's "stolen" family dog has been found safe and well in Essex.
On March 8 Lisa Jackson, of Foots Cray High Street, was hoovering her car and had left the front door slightly ajar.
When she returned to the house she realised her four-year-old Shih Tzu, Harvey, was no where to be seen.
After Harvey's disappearance, Miss Jackson told News Shopper: "There are no witnesses but I'm pretty much certain he was stolen. He would never run away.
"On previous occasions he has come out and jumped in the car."
Yesterday (March 19) she received a call from a woman 18 miles away in Dagenham, Essex, to say she had seen the dog in her neighbour's shed.
Miss Jackson, 32, who has a nine-year-old son, has now been reunited with Harvey.
She said: "I feel absolutely elated. I can't tell you what a weight has been lifted. My life has just been on hold for 11 days.
"Now I can enjoy the rest of my pregnancy."
