Angela Lewis' black Audi A4 was stolen from a Remuera street on Monday night with a pair of Manchester terriers sitting in the back seat.

Kidnapped dog back home
Owners Angela Lewis and Grant Brown spent the next three days frantically following leads, texting a clairvoyant, organising four searching cars in areas of sightings, emailing, calling, Facebooking and asking people on the street.
Bella was found "shaking" in Puhinui Park by Ms Lewis, around 4pm on Thursday but Dexter was still missing.
The Weekend Herald received a call from a member of the public around 9.30am yesterday, saying they had seen Dexter and the stolen car.
