Dog theft warning
FARM dogs are being stolen to order by organised gangs, warns West Sussex pet detective June Bailey.
"About 65 dogs have disappeared throughout the UK in the past six weeks. The dogs are nearly always pedigree, young and entire, with gun dogs a particular favourite," says Ms Bailey, Littlehampton, West Sussex.
Stolen dogs are regularly exported through Holyhead to Eire before being taken to North America and Japan for breeding or vivisection, she added. *
