UPDATE: 16 Nov.
Earleir this morning West Mercia Police published an update on their website announcing that Kaiser had been found and returned to his owners. It states that a member of the public contacted the owners with information about the whereabouts of a dog matching Kaiser’s description. Police and Kaiser’s owners attended the address where they recovered the dog. No arrests have been made but enquiries are still ongoing.
No details are given as to when Kaiser was found but two days earlier (13th Nov.) Peter Ellis had commented on our Facebook page “Dogs been found and returned, great news.”
West Mercia Police have appealed for anyone one with information about a dog stolen from a Hodnet home to contact them with information.
The appeal, which can be found here on the force’s website, asks anyone with information on the whereabouts of him to please call 101 quoting incident number 82 S of Wednesday 11th November 2015.
Two further photographs of the missing animal are available on the police website.
UPDATE: 12 Nov.
In a further post here West Mercia Police have named the stolen Hodnet dog as Kaiser a four-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. The dog, which is described as blue in colour, was wearing a large leather collar which has the owner’s contact details on and is microchipped. Kaiser was asleep in the family’s utility room when thieves got into the address overnight between Tuesday 10th November and Wednesday 11th November. Electrical items and jewellery were also stolen during the burglary.
Det Con Helen Bailey said; “The owners are understandably heartbroken that Kaiser has been taken from them. They have had him since a puppy and he is like a member of the family and is extremely friendly. The family just want him home and to know he is safe.”
