TWO LITTERS of puppies were stolen from their breeders recently, prompting
fears of another spate of stealing to order which seems
to occur at this time of year.
On December 29th 2000, four Beagle puppies were stolen from the home
of breeder M. Hutchinson at Misterton, Crewkerne, Somerset.
The Beagles are all tattooed in their ears and are described as follows:
one nine month old tri-colour bitch, with tan head, white legs and
tummy with brown spots, standing 14 high. Her ear tattoo number
is PK20. Three four month old, one dog and two bitches, all litter
mates with very similar markings.
The dogs ear tattoo number is PK24, the two bitches numbers
being PK26 and PK27, all tattoos being very clearly marked. Any information
pertaining to the stolen puppies should be notified to Mr M Hutchinson
on: 01460-72626 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second theft took place in the early hours of Saturday January
6th when four 7 week old Boxer puppies were stolen from the Bolton
home of breeder Joe Chadwick (Le Creme Boxers). The puppies are described
as follows: two flashy red and white bitches, one Flashy
red and white dog and one white bitch with a red patch over one eye.
There is a £500 reward for the safe return of all four puppies.
