Police have made an urgent appeal for information after thieves stole six puppies which could become ill if they are not returned to the care of their mother.

The American bulldog puppies, which are just three weeks old, were taken from a property in King Street, Rochester, Kent, at 10.15pm on Friday.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “The American bulldog puppies are only three weeks old and are at risk of harm coming to them if they are not cared for appropriately.”

Detective Sergeant Sam Stuart said: “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.

“In the run-up to Christmas, puppies become an attractive commodity and we would ask people who are thinking of buying one to be ‘Puppy Smart’ and follow RSPCA guidance.”

:: Anyone with information is urged to call Kent Police on 01634 792209 quoting reference 46/233149/19.Or they should contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or by using the anonymous online form at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
