A PUPPY, which was allegedly stolen from a farmhouse in El Parador, has been safely recovered by Guardia Civil officers.
According to reports, officers were first made aware that a two-month-old Boxer had been stolen in late October.
After being made aware of the incident, the investigatorsreportedly found a puppy sporting the same characteristics to the stolen dog up for sale on a well-known website.
Investigators then reportedly agreed to meet the seller at a local petrol station where they, alongside the original owners of the puppy, confirmed it was the same dog that was stolen from the farm.
The puppy has now been returned to the rightful owners and two people, one of whom is a woman of Roquetas de Mar, are being investigated allegedly accused of theft.
