CHARLEY was found with a woman outside a school in Birmingham yesterday (Thursday), police have revealed.

Rugby police have been helping to search for Charley ever since she was stolen from her home in Cawston on October 24.

Following a tip off from two members of the public yesterday (Thursday), West Midlands Police attended a school in Sheldon, Birmingham where they spoke a woman in possession of the puppy outside the school gates.

Charley’s owners thanked Rugby Police, and West Midlands Police in helping get their puppy back. They also thanked numerous members of the public who have passed information on.

They said: “We have received over 800 messages of support, and wish to thank everyone involved in helping look for Charley, and the police for all of their help. Charley is fit and well considering her ordeal and setting in back at home nicely.”
