Stolen Akita puppy reunited with Birmingham family

A 12-year-old girl has had an emotional reunion with a puppy taken from her in a Birmingham park.

Ria Shaheena was pushed over and her dog, Mika, snatched in Reddings Lane Park in Tyseley on Thursday afternoon.

A woman in Selly Oak who bought Mika in good faith saw the appeals and contacted police.

The three-month-old Japanese Akita was taken back to her home on Friday morning, none the worse for wear.
