The most stolen dog breeds in Leeds revealed - according to police figures
New police data has revealed the most stolen dog breeds in Leeds.
Data obtained from a Freedom of Information request to West Yorkshire Police (WYP) showed that 60 dogs were recorded as stolen from the city between January 2020 and May 2021.
Of those stolen, just 17 dogs were found, with 71.7 per cent of dogs not recovered.
This means a total of 43 dogs were not found by the police.
Four arrests were made in relation to the reports of dog thefts in Leeds - just 6.67 per cent of all recorded cases.
A total of 24 police reports did not record the breed of the dog.
