New Year at the threshold: in Ireland thefts of purebred dogs became more frequent

New Year at the threshold: in Ireland thefts of purebred dogs became more frequent Irish police began to receive reports about the theft of purebred dogs. According to the police, on the eve of New Year celebrations about 160 such incidents happen weekly.

Experts claim that in the UK and other European countries, in the pre-New Year days resale of dogs can be very profitable on the black market. The price for a purebred puppy grows up to 3 thousands euros.

Popular among thieves are decorative breeds – Bichon FrisePomeranianCavalier King Charles Spaniel, as well as a hunting breed - Jack Russell Terrier. In the UK increased theft of black Cocker Spaniels, due to the fact that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have such a dog. This was stated by Robert Kenny, the head of the Dublin private detective in the agency «Happy Tails» that is specialized on searching dogs. He advises not to leave pets unattended, because most incidents occur in private homes when the owner is absent. Kenny said that according to statistics only 40 % of similar cases are solved.

Changes can happen only by the year 2016, when in Ireland will come into force regulations on the mandatory microchipping of a your pet.
