Police have confirmed they are following a “positive line of enquiry” after three puppies were stolen from an Aberdeen home on Mother’s Day.

Becca Ewan returned home from an outing with her mother on Sunday to find cross bulldogs Peanut, Mia, and Billy had been taken from a litter of ten pups.

The 24-year-old carer revealed she has since launched an appeal for the return of the dogs, revealing the seven-week-old puppies haven’t had their first vaccinations and have never been outside.

She told STV News on Tuesday: “I had ten pups in my house and they’ve taken three leaving me with seven. I honestly have no idea why. Maybe they just grabbed a few and ran, I honestly have no idea.

“The police are going to check CCTV from the pub across the road from me, however I haven’t heard from them today.

“I can’t sleep or eat in panic.”

Police Scotland confirmed officers are following a positive line of enquiry as the investigation continues.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident 2885 of March 19. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.
