40 stolen puppies call for help as the police rush to the rescue

Puppies are beloved family members and living beings. Hence, they should always be treated as such. Unfortunately, not all people think that way. Many end up caring more about the money associated with a pup than the actual pup. As a result, many thieves steal puppies in order to sell them for more money.

When a civilian saw a man packing about 40 puppies into his truck, they knew something was wrong. They called the police and made them aware of this unusual behavior. Soon officers rushed to rescue the innocent pups.

Save the puppy

With the tip, police followed the suspect’s vehicle on a busy road in Gloucestershire, England. They finally caught up with him and let him drive by. From there, they examined his vehicle for stolen puppies.

Sure enough, the officers found two wire cages hidden in the back of the truck. Each was filled with more than 10 young pups crying for help. They all pressed their faces against the cages and begged to be let out so they could be loved like a puppy should.

Most of the puppies were miniature beagle and border collie breeds. Each and every puppy was probably worth thousands of dollars on its own. Of course, the puppy’s safety was more important than any amount of money.

Don’t mess with dogs

The 24-year-old driver of the vehicle was arrested on suspicion of theft. Full details of its consequences have not yet been released. But hopefully he’ll learn his lesson and never put another dog in danger.

“A 24-year-old Durham man was arrested on suspicion of theft of puppies and taken into custody in Gloucestershire, where he is at the time,” said a Gloucestershire police spokesman. “Between 30 and 40 pups were recovered from the van and taken to an RSPCA veterinary practice for assessment.”

Once the puppies have all the medical care they need, they are ready to find a home forever. The shelter will take them in. Hopefully everyone will soon find a family that loves them for who they are.

Investigations are still ongoing as some details are unclear. The alleged puppy thief was brought to the police station for questioning, but was later released from police custody. Detective Constable Dave Wise has shared photos of the stolen pups, but has not yet released any further information about the nap case. Hopefully, justice will be done to these innocent pups in the end.
