Race against time to reunite stolen bulldog puppies with their mum
8 December 2019, 12:28
A plea has been issued for a litter of stolen puppies to be returned to their mum to stop them becoming seriously ill.
The three-week-old American bulldog puppies were taken from a property in King Street, Rochester, Kent, at 10.15pm on December 6.
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."
