A homeless woman has been reunited with her pet dog after she was stolen.

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.

She has been bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on May 31.

The dog has since been reunited with her owner.
