Stolen dog Archie back with owners

Missing cocker spaniel Archie.

A stolen dog is back home after being found.

Owners the Birch family say they collected seven-year-old cocker spaniel Archie.

No more details on Archie’s return are being released yet.

Archie is said to be well after his ordeal, although very tired.

The family has thanked everyone who shared the appeal in recent days.

A video appeal by 14-year-old Molly Birch had been viewed by tens of thousands of people.

The appeal was also broadcast on regional TV.

Mum Emma Birch said her daughter was “ecstatic” to have the dog back.

The family told how they had been left distraught by the theft which happened last Friday at their farm in Barden, near Leyburn.

The thieves smashed their way into Archie’s kennel in the early hours of the morning.
