SIX-YEAR-OLD Elaine Mayo was over the moon when her beloved dog was found.
The little girl, from Norman Road, Birkby, told her mother a group of teenage boys approached her on Sunday afternoon as she and her friend were playing with Buster in Norman Park.
The boys said they were taking the dog away and ran off with him towards Fartown. Elaine's mum, Maryellen Mayo, said a neighbour told her she had seen a dog like Buster after reading about his disappearance in the Examiner.
Mrs Mayo went to look for the dog and found him. "I am just glad to have the dog back and Elaine is over the moon," she said. "It was two days since he disappeared and I didn't think we would see him again."
