An urgent plea to find them has been made by Norfolk Police following the theft of the dogs from a property in Walpole St. Andrew.

“The dogs are believed to have been stolen sometime between 2am and 8am yesterday,” said a police spokesperson.

Two 6-month-old, female Cocker Spaniels, two adult, female Coten de Tulears and one adult, male Toy Poodle were found to be missing after an unknown suspect(s) forced entry through a fence and doors into outdoor kennels.

Officers are keen to trace the dogs, and are appealing for anyone who may have seen them – or witnessed any suspicious activity in the area around the time of the theft - to come forward.
