Our enquires are on-going and we continue to appeal for anyone with information about the break-in and whereabouts of the puppies to come forward.

The puppies were seven weeks old when they were stolen and too young to be parted from their mother. Anyone who has been offered these pups for sale should call us on 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
