Betty, a blind three-year-old St Bernard, and Walter, a two-year-old Bull Mastiff, were stolen from the stables.

Owner Deniqua Westwood found the pooches in a derelict farm – 40 miles away from where they were stolen.

Now the pair are back home with their family after a week of extensive social media appeals.
