This is an issue everywhere so the advice is, unfortunately, relevant.Police are warning dog owners to continue keeping a close eye on their pets following the theft of six puppies in Stroud yesterday, Wednesday 23 September.

Six Sprocker puppies were stolen sometime between 10.30am and 1.30pm yesterday afternoon from an address off Calf Way, Stroud.

Suspects broke a window to gain access and take the six week old puppies.

A grey Mercedes Sprinter van was seen driving suspiciously in the area shortly before the theft took place.

A number of dogs have been reported stolen in the last few months and officers have urged people to remain vigilant.

There are a number of ways that you can help protect your dogs:

-Keep an ID tag on your dog at all times (your surname, mobile number and address only)
-Secure gates using bolts at the top and bottom, along with a heavy-duty padlock and gate alarm
-Never leave your pet in the garden unattended
-Purchase a driveway alarm so you are alerted to any intruders, these can also be used in rear gardens and yards
-Make sure your dog is micro chipped and their details are updated so that they can be returned if they are stolen and subsequently found.
-Avoid leaving a dog tied up outside a shop or left alone in a car, even for a few minutes
-Take lots of photographs of your dog to prove ownership if it’s stolen, pay particular attention to any distinguishing markings on your dog.
-You can also prevent theft on walks by varying walk times and locations and being suspicious of strangers who ask questions about your dog. Make a note of any suspicious, loitering vehicles

Anyone with information about the latest theft in Stroud should quote incident 261 of 23 September.

This is an issue everywhere so the advice is, unfortunately, relevant.

Just heard about an elderly dog found wandering and taken to the vet by a passer-by. No microchip meant heartache for the owners for far longer than was necessary. Thankfully they are now reunited. Please, please make sure your dog is microchipped and the details are up to date, so if you do become separated it's the work of a minute for a vet to contact you. Easy to forget if you change address or phone number. ... See MoreSee Less
