A 16-month-old dachshund that was stolen by a thief posing as a delivery man has been returned home.
Twiglet was found thanks to a tip on Thursday night, the owner posted.
The beloved pet was reunited with his family, including Jo Vindis, 43, her husband Jamie, 47, and their two children, 12 and 14, at 11pm yesterday.
The footage showed how the family was left heartbroken when the £2,000 dog was snatched from their kitchen.
Mr. Vindis said the experience had left Twiglet “a bit off”, but he appreciated the publicity and awareness for helping to win her back.

The footage showed the moment the thief broke into the family’s home disguised as a delivery man to steal the dog.
Jamie Vindis said the family was “blown away” by the people who helped get Twiglet back
He wrote: ‘Everyone…we have the most amazing news…Twig is home!
“She’s a bit turned off by the whole experience, but a tip tonight (via Facebook) from someone who had seen all the hype and awareness, meant we were able to meet around 11pm.”
The pet owner added that he thought the media exposure had left Twiglet “too unwieldy” for any thief to latch on to.
We can’t thank you all enough for all the posts and reposts and the noise that has meant that she probably just got “too hot to handle”.
“We are blown away by how amazing the people have been and we want to thank everyone.”
