Police have released more photographs of the four pedigree dogs stolen from a property in a Lincoln village.
As previously reported, the four brown and white female Cavalier King Charles Spaniels were taken in a burglary on May 27 between 10.20am and 3pm from Sturton Road in Ingleby.
The padlocks on the dogs’ kennels were damaged in order to take the dogs.
Three of the dogs are eight-years-old and one is 12. All have been microchipped.
Lincolnshire Police are continuing their enquiries.
A spokesman for the force said: “The owner of the spaniels is understandably distraught over the theft of these four dogs, one of which is quite old, and is desperate to get them back.
“We are appealing for anyone who might have seen or heard anything suspicious, or even out of place in Ingleby, to get in touch with police because the more information we have the better chance we stand of finding the person or people who took these dogs.
“This is a very rare thing to happen and if you have seen any of these dogs or know of anyone who may suddenly have acquired any brown and white Cavalier King Charles Spaniels please do let us know.”
Anyone with information should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incident 386 of May 27. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
