Four female miniature dachshunds were taken from the property and owner Christine Holden-Storey believes the thieves struck within a 30-45 minute time slot having sussed out the specially built dog house earlier in the day.

Christine, who is a registered breeder of dachshunds, has kept the breed for over 45 years.

She said: “I was nipping out to check on one of the dogs every hour because it wasn’t well. I had gone out just before 9pm and then went again about 9.45pm.

“When I got to the dog house the door had been jemmied open, two other dogs were terrified and running around the garden and the four others: Phoebe and her daughter Lola, Millie and Florence, were missing. Phoebe is quite elderly. Whoever did this must have sussed the place out in daylight and then timed the break-in carefully because I was in and out of the dog house all day and there was a man in the field next door putting fencing up.”
