An urgent appeal has been made on social media after seven puppies were stolen from a farm in Dawlish, Devon.

Six five-week-old Springer Spaniels and a four-month-old were taken from the farm around 9-10pm on Monday (September 2).

The four-month-old dog is microchipped but the younger ones aren't.

Owner Aimee Foster said she is 'heartbroken' in her appeal on social media.

The Facebook post says: “Six five-week old springers and a four-month-old black and white springer bitch - she is microchipped.



“Taken between 9pm-10pm this evening.

“These are working dogs. We have warm kennel, they do all have beds away from their runs which are concrete for easy cleaning.”

Anyone with information has been urged to contact Aimee on 07764 374058 or her dad Tony on 07786 600374.

It follows the release of figures which reveal that rural crime cost the UK £50m last year, an increase of 12% on the previous year.
