The owners of the 13-week-old puppy stolen from kennels in Pathhead are delighted that he has been found safe and well.

Just hours after Kirstie Broadfoot and her family left for Spain on Sunday their adorable Jack Russell puppy, Jack, was stolen from Cranstoun Kennels on Sunday night along with one of the kennel’s owner’s dogs, six-year-old Lurcher Squire - who was found safe and well on Monday morning in Whitecraig by the East Lothian dog warden.

Now Jack has also been found, discovered safe and well on Tuesday night

Speaking from Spain, Kirstie told the Advertiser: “All we want to say is how happy us and the kids are that he’s back safe and well and we want to thank every one for their support.”

The kennel’s owner Jane Glass was delighted with the good news.

She said: “How wonderful, just brilliant.

“I would like to say that we have just been overwhelmed by the amount of support we have had, everybody has been rooting for these two dogs and now they are home safe.

“It just shows how many kind people are out there.

“Obviously we were devastated that people broke in to our kennels. But we are not going to dwell on that.

“This was shared all over the world, it’s just been tremendous, and it restores your faith in human kind.”

Jane has kept kennels locally for nearly 40 years but had never had a break-in. She has a licence to hold up to 40 dogs, and had around 30 dogs when the break-in occurred.

No arrests have been made and police are appealing for any information.
