‘Just to let everyone know yesterday evening my sister’s house was what we can only assume targeted by dog thieves at about 7-8pm’, she wrote.
The family claims to have heard loud knocking sounds around the house, possibly on windows – causing dogs within the home to bark.
She added: ‘When they went outside to their gate, it had string around it. Which sounds very similar to a previous target in the same area.
‘This happened near The Rank in North Bradley so please share and keep your ears and eyes open.’
