Police are appealing for help in trying to find the two dogs pictured after they were stolen in Hinckley.
The dogs, which are Chihuahuas, had been left in the boot of a car – a Mercedes CLS 220 - by their owner while it was parked in a supermarket car park in Rugby Road, yesterday (Wednesday 13 March).
The owner went into the supermarket at around 4.30pm and when she returned at 6.30pm, discovered that the dogs – named Dinky and Doris - had been taken. Both are microchipped.
Chris Kyte, from Leicestershire Police’s crime bureau, said: “Were you in the supermarket yesterday evening? Did you see the dogs pictured or anyone acting in a suspicious manner in the car park?
“We would ask anyone who has information as to their whereabouts to get in touch. Have you seen them listed for sale? Their owner is understandably very upset and is desperate for them to be returned safe and well.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting crime number 19*130137.
