However Kya's owner, David Smith, 39, said: "We have been reunited with Kya after she was spotted in town.

"Someone who had recognised a picture of her has taken her off someone walking her in the town centre and contacted me to say they have got her.

David and his partner Terry McCarthy, 30, thanked people for sharing the post on social media, with David adding: "Without the reaction she wouldn't have been spotted.
