AN Alaskan malamute dog was stolen from the front garden of a home in a Fenland village in daylight.

The dog's owner, Michael Howling, has now pleaded for Big Ted to be returned safely to his home in Tydd Gote.

Big Ted was stolen between noon-1pm yesterday from Mr Howling's home - Cottage Shop, Main Road.

Mr Howling said: "He has never run off before, so someone must have taken him and shut the gate afterwards.

"I think someone may have taken him for breeding, but he has been neutered so he will be of no use to anyone. I am worried he will just be abandoned somewhere as a result."

Big Ted is grey and white, and wears a blue collar with a tag. He is also micro-chipped. Mr Howling has owned Big Ted since he was a puppy.

Mr Howling said: "He is very distinctive."
