Thieves Hack Microchip From Dog's Neck And Run Off With Her Puppies

Thieves Hack Microchip From Dog's Neck And Run Off With Her Puppies

WARNING: CONTAINS DITRESSING CONTENT

Police are investigating after cruel thieves in Ireland stole a Springer Spaniel and her seven puppies, before hacking out the mother Spaniel's microchip with a knife so that she couldn't be traced.

Daisy the dog was dumped 75 miles away from her owner Patricia Doyle's County Wexford home after the ordeal, but the dognappers took off with her puppies - Forest, Mabel, Maggie, Betty, Bonnie, Coba and Sam - who are sadly still missing.

Patricia was 'overjoyed' when Daisy was found in Dublin, but said her pet was left whimpering as she pined after her missing brood.

Photos also show Daisy's stitched-up neck, having had to be treated after thieves used a knife to remove her microchip.

Patricia said: "She was dumped on the street to starve, but the worst thing was they had actually taken a knife to her neck and removed her microchip and left her there.

"It's heartbreaking. We can't leave her out of our sight for a second. We can't leave the room."
