An American Bulldog puppy stolen from a home in Glasgow has been reunited with his owners.

Nine-week-old Cairo was taken from Meiklerig Court in Pollok when three men broke in on Wednesday night.

One of the men threatened the homeowner with a “bladed weapon” before stealing the dog.

But the pooch was found in Shettleston on Friday evening.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “The dog was found in the Shettleston area and has now been returned to its owners. Enquiries are ongoing into the incident.”

Detective constable Christopher Sneddon, of Police Scotland’s Glasgow CID unit, said on Thursday: “Thankfully nobody has been injured as a result of this incident but the owner has been left evidently shaken. 

“We are appealing to anyone who may have noticed three men acting suspicious in the area to come forward and speak to officers.

“If there is anyone who has possible CCTV or dashcam footage that could assist with our enquiries, please get in touch with police. 

“I would also ask if anyone is approached about buying a puppy similar to this to get in contact with police. 

“Police can be contacted on 101 quoting incident number 3960 on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.”
