regarding the theft of dogs.

ALL ages of dogs are being targeted that are being left outside shops and in some cases people have been approached and asked if they would "sell" there dog.

Happy new year everyone.

Please be aware that a specific crime is on the increase in the Sheffield area.
The crime is regarding the theft of dogs. ALL ages of dogs are being targeted that are being left outside shops and in some cases people have been approached and asked if they would "sell" there dog.
This obviously is a scam. Please be aware that sending young children out with their pets can also be risky, make sure who ever takes out the animal is in complete control of it.
If you let you dog loose in the grounds of your property make sure it is safe and no one can take it away.

I hope this helps anyone who heard any mention of this.

Please call us if you see anything suspicious in your area.
