A stolen pug has been reunited with her owner in scenes of an extremely adorable nature.

Lola the dog was taken from Kate Witham's home in Essex during a burglary.

Three people were arrested in connection with the robbery, which led police at Harlow Police Station to retrieve the canine and give her back to her rightful owner.

The moment the pair were reunited

The officer holding the pooch could hardly contain the little one's excitement as she saw her owner from afar.

Lola can be seen running and jumping into her arms in happiness.

Once reunited, Witham said: “I had been so worried about Lola since she went missing so when I got the call from the police I was over the moon.

"As soon as I saw her, her little tail went into overdrive and I instantly knew it was her. I am just so happy to have her back.”
