The pug 'snatched' from a Bromley home and taken away in a car has been reunited with his family.

Bromley's RSPCA branch reported the news last night and thanked everyone who helped find the pet. 

On Twitter, the animal welfare society team said a "BIG THANK YOU" and that the pooch was "returned to owners yesterday!"

Vanessa Lucas, 40, described how she and her two daughters had been left "devastated" after four-year-old Bertie on Sunday was picked up by an unknown woman. 

But now Bertie has been reunited with the family, from Havelock Road, and rejoins fellow pug Peaches who had been "left all alone" by the incident.

That's a happy ending. Nice to see the dog returned to its rightful owners. Well done to all those keeping a look out, but do they know why this woman took bertie in the first place? It matters in case this is a habit of hers and people need to be warned.

If she thought the dog was lost - do we know where she took it? On this occasion it may be that she acted with the best of intentions. My mother always used to take a spare lead with her when she walked her dog in case she found a lost dog. On one occasion a little boy asked if he could please have his dog back.....
