Sharon Collings reunited with her Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog Ellie after five years
A pet dog that was stolen five years ago has been reunited with its owner - after being found more than 500 miles away in Scotland.
Sharon Collins, 36, popped into a newsagents in January 2009 and left her Staffordshire bull terrier, Ellie, tied up outside.
When she returned two minutes later the black dog had gone.
A dog-napper is thought to have unclipped Ellie's lead and ran off with her outside the shop in Bere Regis, Dorset.
