A Banchory family have been reunited with their pet dog - nearly two weeks after she disappeared.
One-year-old Honey went missing during a walk and was last seen running into Crathes Castle estate on Saturday, November 17.
The Patterdale/Border Terrier cross vanished when she went after deer.
Owner Ali Grahamslaw, family and friends launched a frantic search but to no avail.
Incredibly, Honey was found the other day by Sheila Parker who was walking in the estate and heard her barking.
Mother-of-four Ali said: “Sheila heard her cries, located her in a rabbit hole and then dug her out with her bare hands.
“Honey is now home sleeping in front of the fire after a visit to the vet.
“We are so thankful to all the wonderful people of Deeside who supported us by searching or sending us their best wishes.
“We are a very lucky family to have been reunited with Honey. What a relief for a happy ending.”
The Grahamslaw family had been willing to offer a reward to anyone who found the dog and brought her home.
The search involved appeals on social media.
