A man has made an appeal after his puppy was stolen from outside his home.
Richard Latter, 40, from Marden noticed that his nine-month-old border terrier, Morse, was missing while gardening at his home on Pattenden Lane at around 10.45am last Wednesday.
Mr Latter, who lives with his partner and their two-year-old son, said: “Me and my partner both had dogs as kids and wanted to complete the family with Morse.”
A woman who lives nearby told Mr Latter that she had seen the dog being taken by a man and a woman driving a blue pickup truck who told her that they knew the owner and were going to return him.
The vehicle was later seen next to a burger van on an industrial estate, also on Pattenden Lane, and a dog was heard barking from inside.
The incident has been reported to police but Mr Latter urges anyone with information to contact him on 07984 353967.
