The search for two puppies who went missing in South Hedland last week has ended with an emotional reunion.

Lorretta Amajoutt said she was overwhelmed by the kindness and support of the Hedland community who had helped search for her dogs, who were missing for more than 24 hours.

Buddy, an eight-month-old male boxer cross, and Luna, a seven-month-old female pure-bred German short-haired pointer, wandered off from a house they had been staying at on Steamer Avenue.

She said the publicity her dogs enjoyed during their disappearance allowed her to be reunited with her two best friends.

Desperate to find them, Ms Amajoutt put out a plea on social media and placed posters around the area to find the dogs, who she feared may have been stolen.

The dogs were found by a man who discovered the mischievous canines enjoying an overnight camp-out on his property. Ms Amajoutt and her partner, who was working away at the time, were overjoyed to receive a call.

Ms Amajoutt thanked all the people who responded and helped spread the message across social media.
