Updated 12 March 2002, 13.41
Rosa with Father David Lloyd

Her owner, Father David Lloyd, thought he might never see his pet ever again.

But the thieves then called him and demanded a 3,000 ransom for Rosa, and threatened to kill her if he didn't pay up. His burnt-our car was then found dumped in the street.

Boys saw Rosa on the news

But the thieves obviously had a change of heart and Rosa was found wandering on wasteland near her home in the West Midlands by two boys.

They didn't realise Rosa was missing, so they took her home for a while and looked after her as their own pet.

But then they heard about Rosa on the news and handed her in to police.

So Rosa's finally back where she belongs.
