A devastated owner has appealed for help after two of her dogs were stolen from her Petworth farm.

Alison Batchelor is desperately appealing for information after her two dogs went missing from her Petworth home on Tuesday night (October 22). Alison, who lives at Downview Farm in Petworth, said she returned home to find ‘Chukka’ and ‘Jibber’ had vanished.

“My dogs go hunting, but they have never not come back,” said Alison.

“I think somebody has picked them up.

“We have searched all the main roads and country roads for them. They normally roam our farm and everyone knows our dogs around the area.”

Chukka is a four-year-old female terrier-cross dog with black, white and brown markings.
