Six newborn puppies have been reunited with their mother after they were stolen from a flat in Harpurhey yesterday (20 July 2019).
Following an urgent public appeal issued hours after the five-week-old puppies were taken, officers from GMP’s City of Manchester Division attended a property in Moston and recovered all six dogs.
A 40-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and remains in custody for questioning.
The staff cross puppies, who are all safe and well, have now been reunited with their mother, Zena, who is over the moon at their return.
The investigation into the incident – which took place at a flat on Fernclough Road at around 9:30am yesterday – remains ongoing and detectives are keen to speak to anyone with information that can assist.
Detective Constable Nick Kershaw of GMP’s City of Manchester Division said:
This has been a fast-paced investigation and I am pleased to be able to say that last night, we attended at an address in Moston and recovered all six puppies.
