Appeal made for information after 14 dogs stolen in Limerick

Bichon Frise, Cavalier King Charles, Jack Russell and Cavachon were among the breeds stolen.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses in relation to a burglary in Limerick where 14 dogs were stolen.

The incident is believed to have occurred around 12pm on Tuesday when a black car was seen leaving a house in Tullig, Drumcollogher.

It was later discovered that 14 dogs were missing from kennels at the back of the house.

Bichon Frise, Cavalier King Charles, Jack Russell and Cavachon were among the breeds stolen.

It's understood that dogs are believed to have been worth around €8,000 but a number of the dogs had been owned by the family for many years and have immense sentimental value.

Gardaí said some of the other dogs were already sold and were waiting to be collected by their new owners in the coming weeks.

Investigating Gardaí in Newcastlewest are appealing for anyone who may have seen this black car, particularly road users with video footage, to contact Gardaí.

Gardaí are also urging anyone who may have been offered these dogs to contact Gardaí in Newcastlewest on 069 20650, The Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
