A homeless woman has been reunited with her pet dog after she was stolen.
Chihuahua Fifi was in a pram when she was stolen from outside a supermarket in Adelaide’s Rundle Mall on Tuesday.
Owner Ruth Reidy, a Big Issue vendor, had been inside the supermarket for a few minutes only to return to find Fifi, the pram and her mobile phone gone.
CCTV from the area was reviewed by police and it was alleged a woman was seen carrying the dog tucked under her arm.
On Friday night, police went to a property in Richmond and found Fifi.
A 43-year-old Richmond woman was arrested and charged with theft.
