Fears had been growing for a little Romanian rescue dog named Suri. The nervous dog, who was frightened of men, had gone missing in the Cleator Moor area.
Then, a Christmas miracle happened.
Suri had made her own way home.
Tracey Sands said: "My mam heard her barking, she opened the door for a few minutes and she came running in.
"She is now jumping about and cuddling as though nothing has happened. Thank you everyone who helped looked for her, for sharing and for doing all you could."
