Seven dogs stolen from Iwade kennel
Seven dogs were taken from secure and alarmed kennels at a farm in School Lane, Iwade, overnight from Wednesday to Thursday last week, according to the This is Kent.
The thieves are believed to have tested the system because the alarm had gone off the week before the theft but there was no break-in. Also a part of a fence was removed to reach the dogs. One of the dogs was pregnant. Details of the theft are listed on national website Dog Lost, which provides information about lost and found dogs so they can be reunited with their owners. All the pet owners have been reminded that they could help reduce the trade in stolen dogs by micro-chipping their pets and being more alert when buying an animal. Dogs are being sold from the side of motorways because sellers say they don't want the children to see the dog go and people are believing these stories. If a price seems too good to be true then it is probably stolen.
In September 2008, ten dogs, including eight newborn puppies, were taken from the Iwade farm and nine cocker spaniels were stolen in 2009. Anybody who has any information about the dog's whereabouts can call police on 01622 690690, quoting crime reference CY/17212/11 or contact Dog Lost in confidence on 0844 8003220 or at www.doglost.co.uk
