Dog thefts on the rise

Dog thefts have increased by 6% year-on-year across the UK, a new report reveals. 

The report from insurer Direct Line shows police figures suggest that at least 2,290 dogs were stolen last year with just 16% being successfully reunited with their owners – the lowest level since the company started keeping track in 2015. 

The Metropolitan Police reported the most thefts, with 359 dogs reported missing across London, followed by Kent Police (138) and West Yorkshire Police (125). 

In addition, the statistics reveal the three most stolen dog breeds in the UK are English Bulldogs, French Bulldogs and XL Bullies.
