Six American Bulldog puppies have been snatched from a house in Rochester.

Kent Police say the three-week-old pups need to be returned to the care of their mother or risk becoming ill.

They were taken from a property in King Street at 10.15pm on December 6.

Police have released images of the six puppies in the hope someone might recognise them.

‘We are keen to get these puppies returned home as quickly as possible. They are far too young to have been taken from their mother at only three-weeks old.
