The body of a dead dog has been recovered from the Norfolk Broads following an outpouring of support on social media.
Tasha, a brown and white Staffordshire bull terrier, drowned in the Broads on Saturday after she fell in the water.
Owners Linda and Pete Langridge were on holiday from York with Ms Langridge's sister, Julie Scaum.
On Tuesday, Ms Scaum, 57, said a man volunteered to dive near where the dog was last seen, after the family appealed on social media for help in retrieving Tasha's body.
The diver was able to find the dog's body and brought it back to the family.
Ms Scaum said the family wanted closure.
She said: "When we saw her, it was like a load off our shoulders.
"It was like she'd come back to us."
