ONE of two German Shepherd puppies snatched from an award winning Wisbech kennels in February had been recovered 100 miles after being abandoned near the M1.
The owner of Iolanda Kennels has given a reward to the person who found Inta - an eight-week-old puppy bred at the Cromwell Road kennels.
Nine-month-old Inta was found abandoned along the M1 near Doncaster last Wednesday. She was lean, had a badly infected front leg - and is pregnant.
But, after check-ups at veterinary surgeries in Doncaster and Wisbech, Inta was identified by a microchip and returned home on Monday.

Tina Jermey, owner of Iolanda Kennels, said: "I just could not thank this lady enough for picking her up so, as a reward, I am going to give her a puppy."
Inta was stolen from Iolanda in a daylight robbery on February 5, along with brother Robbie who is still missing.
Mrs Jermey said: "There is a road parallel to the M1 that this woman was driving along to fetch her daughter from school, when she saw Inta curled up under a hedge.
"The woman approached Inta and took her to the local vets, where they found the microchip."
"I fetched Inta last Thursday morning and took her to a vet in Wisbech, who looked after her until Monday. We now have antibiotics to heal the infection and she is going to have an injection to abort the pregnancy."
Mrs Jermey thinks Inta was abandoned because of the infected leg, but is now hoping to trace Robbie in the same area and has offered a substantial reward for his return.
She said: "It is great to have Inta back, but last week I thought I was never going to get them back; I was just starting to lose hope.
"But now Inta's here let's hope Robbie is returned."
Dog lovers throughout the country have contacted Mrs Jermey welcoming the news of the safe return of Inta.
"Great news, please God that you find Robbie," wrote one dog lover.
Another said she lives near Doncaster "and we will do our best to try to help find the other one.
