Two Chihuahuas have been stolen from a boat on the Grand Union Canal in Hertfordshire.
Tink, a black and white female with short hair, and Archie, a long-haired blonde male, were taken from the vessel while it was moored at a marina.
The thieves gained access to the boat while it was moored near the Cowroast Marina between Berkhamsted and Tring, between 10am on January 3 and 12.15am on January 4.
The owner is extremely upset and is keen to be reunited with the dogs as soon as possible.
I would ask anyone who thinks they may have come across these dogs to please contact police.

Pink pellets that could be potentially harmful to dogs have been left at the foot of trees in Hertfordshire.
Police are urging animal owners to be vigilant following the discovery on the Wheathampstead heritage trail in Devil's Dyke.
The pellets have now been removed with samples taken for testing by officers. They were first found on Saturday January 21 but were not reported to police so they could be cleared up until January 23.
"The pellets are currently being tested but it is highly likely they could be harmful to dogs or other animals. If you were in the area with your dog over the weekend and they seem unwell, please taken them to the vet to be checked over.
"Until we know what the pellets are, we want to make sure people are aware as a precaution."
