A DOG stolen from its home in Barrow Gurney has been returned to his owners after being found abandoned and underweight.
Last month, the Times reported how three dogs had been taken from a stable yard on the A38 Bridgwater Road during the night of December 6.
The two lurchers, called Bear and Peggy, and a Jack Russell cross, called Yogi, lived at the yard, where they were kept in a locked tack room overnight.
However, thieves managed to break-in and steal the dogs along with a horse driving harness.
Following their disappearance, the dogs’ owners Cheryl Caddick and her son Russell were left heartbroken.

However, on Friday they received a call to say the black, male lurcher, Bear, had been handed into the RSPCA in Bristol after being discovered near Frenchay Hospital.
He was about half his normal weight, had cuts and sores on his body and had also been fitted with a leather collar which had been fastened extremely tight.
