Police seized two dogs believed to be stolen this week.

The animals were rescued from the Aylesbury Vale area yesterday (Tuesday) after being found in “poor conditions” and are now being looked after.

TVP Aylesbury Vale wrote on its Facebook page: “During our patrols as part of the rural crime operation, the Rural NHPT have seized these two dogs due to the poor conditions they were being kept in and a suspicion of them having been stolen.

“They are being cared for by a partner agency whilst further enquiries are conducted.”
