Two pedigree miniature Dachschunds have been stolen from their owner’s home.

They are both girls, Roxie aged two and Queenie aged six. They both have smooth, black and tan fur.

Queenie’s owners are particularly concerned for her welfare as she suffers from a severe slipped disc which needs daily medication to help contain the condition. Without this medication her back legs could collapse and the medication will now be out of her system.

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.

Anyone who can help to reunite the Dachshunds with their owners is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Cheryl Power. Alternatively information can be emailed to
