A delighted dog owner has been reunited with her beloved canine companion after he was cruelly snatched outside a shop in Glasgow.

Kirsteen Marshall, 34, had not seen her Shih-Tzu-Bichon-cross, Blake, since Monday night (7th October), after leaving him outside a Nisa shop at 9pm.

Kirsteen Marshall has been reunited with her Shih-Tzu-Bichon-cross Blake.

The mum-of-one said she has walked the same route with her six-and-a-half-year-old pooch every night for the last five years, which includes a stop outside the shop where she buys milk for the next morning.

Blake, who was off his lead but never usually moves from Kirsteen's sights, was sitting at the door of the shop in the Gorbals, Glasgow, before he disappeared without a trace.

After the shocking incident, Kirsteen got the Scottish authorities to investigate the dog snatching and a huge social media campaign to bring Blake home was created.

Blake was sitting at the door of the shop in Glasgow before he disappeared.

Now Kirsteen, who previously offered a £5,000 reward for the safe return of the dog, has confirmed her pooch Blake is back home.

Posting on the campaign page, she said: "We rescued Blake from a house in Possil tonight at 2am.

"Thank you so, so, so much to every single person across the world who shared our posts. It was indeed the social media efforts that led us right to the door of where Blake was being held.

An online campaign was created in the wake of his disappearance.

"Many lessons have been learned and Blake will never be out of our sight again. Let it be known that the people of Glasgow will not give up. Wrong dog, wrong community, wrong city," she continued.

"We did this the old school way and it worked. If u ever lose your loved one never ever give up. Miracles happen." [sic]

Although Kirsteen has finally been reunited with her beloved Blake, the police in Scotland have said that an investigation into the dog-napping is still ongoing.

No doubt it was a ruff time for Kirsteen and her family - but at least they got their happy ending.
