** REPORTS OF STOLEN DOGS **
Hedingham, Bulmer, Colne and surrounding areas in Essex.
Please be vigilant as there are a few local reports of dogs being "STOLEN" locally around the Hedingham and nearby areas in Essex and Suffolk.
Due to this, please do not to leave your dogs unattended in the garden, ensure they are wearing a collar, ID tag and that their microchip details are up to date. If your dog is not micripchipped please get this done ASAP.
The trend seems to be multiple dog households with gun dog and working type breeds but all dog owners must be extra vigilant.
Please also notify 111 if you see drones being used over residential properties or any suspicious people or vehicles in your area.
You can also register on DogLost - those registered will receive alerts when dogs are Missing, Stolen or Found in your area. It sends notifications and posters out to pet professionals like, groomers, dog walkers and vets.
There have been 32 cocker spaniels stolen in East Angila since last month (NOT including the ones locally)
PLEASE STAY VIGILANT
