Two of seven missing Lincolnshire dogs found

Ongoing: While two of the stolen dogs have now been found, police are working to trace the remaining five pets.

Two out of the seven Saluki dogs believed to be stolen from a home near Market Rasen have been recovered.

One of the dogs was found on The Ridgeway in Berkshire by staff from an animal welfare charity and the other was found in Andover, Hampshire, by a member of the public.

Both dogs are well and have been returned to their owner.

As previously reported, the seven dogs were reportedly stolen from pens outside of the property in North Gulham on Saturday, November 1 between 4.30pm and 6pm while the owner was out.

The dogs stolen from pens at the property were a red three-year-old male Saluki, 27” in size; a fawn female Saluki, nine-months-old and 25” in size with a half-moon shaped scar on her left side; a 10-week-old male Saluki puppy, with white and brown colour patches; a light fawn coloured 10-week-old male Saluki puppy; two red female Saluki puppies, both 10-weeks-old nd a three-month-old brindle and white cross puppy.

The owner has also made an appeal on social media, with an offer of £2,000 for the safe return of the dogs.

Enquiries are still ongoing to find the remaining dogs, and officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything to do with the offence, or anything suspicious in the area at the time.

Anyone who may know the whereabouts of the remaining dogs should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident 418 of 01/11/2014.
