Two rare puppies stolen from pub.

A DOG breeder is appealing for help after two puppies were snatched from her Cheshire home.

Urgent information is needed on the whereabouts of two rare black flatcoated retriever puppies after they were stolen from The Alvanley Arms Inn, near Tarporley, on Thursday between 2.30pm - 3pm.

The pups - only five-and-a-half weeks old - are too young to survive without their mother and siblings and owner Janet King is urging people across the North West to be on the lookout.

"These puppies are in real danger. I'm very concerned for their welfare as many people will not know how and struggle to look after dogs so young - as they require regular attention, care and feeding every few hours," explained Janet.

"I am appealing to everyone to be vigilant and keep a lookout for the two puppies, whether a neighbour has unexpectedly got a new puppy or if someone has been offered one in a local pub.

"Flatcoated retrievers grow into big dogs that can be highly strung and difficult to handle if you don't have the correct training and experience."

Vets across Cheshire and Merseyside and the Flatcoated Retriever Society have been alerted to the missing puppies and flyers have been handed out in the local area.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Janet King on 01829 760200.
