Knaresborough police are making a fresh appeal after two pedigree miniature dachshunds were stolen from a house between Plompton Woods and Spofforth off the A661.

Pets Roxie, two, and Queenie, six, both with smooth black and tan fur, disappeared between 11.45am and 2.10pm on Tuesday, August 21.

Owners are worried for Queenie who has a slipped disk and needs daily medication to stop her back legs collapsing.

PC Cheryl Power, of Knaresborough Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The theft of these much loved family pets has had a devastating effect on the owners, who are desperate to get them back. They want their dogs back regardless of whatever condition they may be in, especially due to Queenie’s illness.

“I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who was on the A661 and might have seen the dogs been taken across the main road in a black cage style basket which was also stolen.”

Anyone with information should call 101, select option 2 and ask for Cheryl Power.
