Pedro the chihuahua has been reunited with his owner.

Pedro the black and tan chihuahua went missing on Thursday last week (January 17) after his owner was in a car crash on the A43 near Brackley.

His owner was taken to hospital after the collision between the car and lorry. But meanwhile, the two-year-old family pet had escaped from the car and ran away.

It marked the beginning of a three-day appeal to find Pedro and bring him home.
