A dog owner has made an emotional appeal for the safe return of their pet who was allegedly taken away in a van.
Retired lecturer Pam Nash last saw Daisy at her home in Hollingbourne near Maidstone on Monday morning and a neighbour's dashcam footage has shown the pooch being taken away by a white Ford Transit.
The 76-year-old is desperate to have the cocker spaniel, who came to live with her and husband William early in 2020, returned home.
"She is chipped, she's spayed, she is too old to breed, that's why we took her in," Mrs Nash said.
"She has no value. Please can you let us have her back, she really has been our joy during lockdown. Please let us have her back."
A Facebook post appealing for the hound's safe return has been shared widely on social media, increasing the hope that someone may know who took their pet in Upper Street at around 8.50am on Monday.
A Kent Police spokesman said: "Officers are investigating a report that a dog was stolen in Hollingbourne. A white and tan cocker spaniel sitting outside an address was allegedly stolen by a man in a lorry.
"Enquiries are continuing into the incident and officers are urging anybody with information to call Kent Police."
If you know where Daisy is please call police on 01622 604100 quoting reference 46/10049/21
