Police are appealing for information after two dogs were stolen from a garden in Lancaster last week.
The dogs, a Lakeland terrier and Jack Russell, were stolen sometime between 9.00pm on Wednesday 8th and 9.00am on Thursday 9th May from a back garden on Whalley Road.
The thief climbed over the locked garden gate and removed the two dogs from an internal dog run.
Peg the terrier is red in colour, five years old and is chipped. The Jack Russell is called Jip and is tri coloured with a hole in the right hand side of its mouth from a previous injury. He is four and a half years old.
PC Byrony Fell from Lancaster Police said: “The owner of the dogs is understandably upset and id appeal to anybody that saw anybody acting suspiciously on Whalley Road or anybody that thinks they have been offered the dogs for sale to contact police on 101.
“There is no way in which the dogs could have escaped from the garden as they live out in their own secure run and the garden gate is secured from within with a bolt lock.”
People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
