Gardaí seek public's assistance in returning stolen dog to her home

She was seized in Mallow yesterday.

Gardaí are seeing the public's assistance in returning a dog they believe to be stolen to her home.

The female cocker spaniel was recovered during an operation in Mallow, Co Cork yesterday along with another dog. Gardaí believe she was stolen from the Leinster area.

The dog in questioned is not microchipped and is currently in the care of a member of An Garda Síochána.

The other dog was microchipped and has since been returned to its owner.

"Please share and hopefully we can get this girl back to her home," An Garda Síochána said on Facebook. "Looks like she was stolen, possibly from the Leinster Area and was found in Mallow, Cork.

"Following a report from Dublin that dogs had been stolen, an operation was put in place in Mallow yesterday. Two cocker spaniel dogs were recovered and seized by Gardaí.

"Both dogs were scanned and one dog was positively identified and returned to owner. The second dog was not microchipped and we are trying to get her home.

No arrests have been made but Gardaí are following a definite line of enquiry."

Gardaí added that the owner of the dog should contact Mallow Garda Station on 022 31450.
