Police find 49 stolen dogs at site in Bromley

Police are urging dog owners to ensure their pets are microchipped following the recent recovery of missing dogs. In the early hours of last Wednesday officers from the Met’s South Area BCU recovered 24 dogs from a site in Orpington following an early morning warrant. An additional 25 dogs have since been seized from the site during ongoing searches. Officers now believe that some of these dogs have been stolen and are looking to reunite them with their rightful owners, however this is proving difficult as most of the dogs have not been microchipped, meaning officers are not able to contact the owners. Officers also suspect they have uncovered an unlicensed puppy breeding operating at the site. Police are working closely with Bromley council, which has started an investigation into offences under breeding regulations.
