Concerns have been raised over the safety of an owner after two dogs were found wandering with their leads.
Police have used drones to search the countryside after the terriers were found unaccompanied in Parsonage Lane, Bobbing, at around 10pm yesterday (October 2).
Typically, unaccompanied animals considered lost or abandoned are handed over to the local warden when their owners cannot be found.
However, the circumstances in which the animals were found on Monday suggest their owner may be unaccounted for and police are keen find them to ensure they are safe, as well as reunite them with their pets.
The pups are believed to be between 12 and 18 months old – the male dog has a green collar and the female dog is wearing a pink collar.
One lead is blue and the other is green. The male dog has been neutered.
Officers have searched the Parsonage Lane area, including using a drone, and have not been able to locate the owner.
Insp Stephen Callow of Swale’s Local Policing Team said: “As the area is surrounded by countryside we are keen to make sure the dogs’ owner isn’t unaccounted for and I am asking anyone who recognises the animals to get in touch with us.
“We have checked them for a microchip, but they do not have one and at present we do not know who they belong to.”
Anyone with information should call 999 quoting 02-1599.
