A dog that was believed to have been stolen from its family has been found whimpering behind a shed, police have said.
Arthur, a two-and-a-half-year-old border terrier, was stolen from his owners driveway in Castle Acre on November 29, at 10am.
He was found almost a week later at 8.45am on Saturday, December 5, behind a shed of a property in the same village, after a gardener heard him whimpering.
PC Jamie Willetts said: "The gardener and the dog's owner had to lift several heavy items out of the way to retrieve Arthur, who appeared to be very pleased to be reunited with his owner.
"It doesn't appear that he had been there very long: he was well fed and the tag on his collar was missing although his collar was still intact."
