In the "hope" department, it's a sad day when your Dachshund is stolen, but a happy one when she is found. That's what happened to these one and three year-old girls who hail from Newington Close, Southend, UK. Their cute Dachshund puppy 'Rolo' was stolen from inside their home last Saturday evening. Their Mom received an anonymous tip where the puppy could be found, and it was right around the corner from them! After the police refused to help get the puppy back, stating that "it wasn't a priority," a family friend knocked on the door of the house and stated "I believe you have my neighbour’s dog and I would like to take her back to them."
