THIS is the moment little Bijou was reunited with owner Mary over two months after being reported missing.
The emotional scenes were captured at the DSPCA centre in Rathfarnham in Dublin yesterday.
The dog was reported stolen from Dunlavin in Co Wicklow on August 9th.
Despite the best efforts of his owners, little Bijou remained lost for the last two months.
However DSPCA inspectors located the dog wandering the streets of Lucan in Co Dublin.
When found, he was underweight and infected with flees, however otherwise in good health.
Bijou has now been microchipped and is safely back at home with his delighted owner Mary.
The DSPCA has stressed the importance of having dogs microchipped in case they become lost or stolen.
