A breeding dog used to 
supply specialist pups for 
the police has been reported stolen from kennels in Middle Rasen.

Owner Danielle Curzon, of Market Rasen, said the kennels in Gallamore Lane were broken into sometime during 5pm Monday and 7.30pm yesterday.

The stolen female, Holly, is a Dutch Herder, worth around £10,000, she said. Holly had five months ago given birth to puppies to a North Yorkshire police dog.

Danielle believes she has an idea who may of taken Holly.

“I have a feeling who it was. If I am right, I don’t think I will see her again. She was worth £10,000,” she told the Rasen Mail.

The 34-year-old is well known as a dog breeder, supplying Dutch Herders and Malinois dogs to British police forces. She is also famous as a stunt dog handler and personal bodyguard to film stars including Natalie Portman from the Star Wars movies and Emma Watson from the Harry Potter series.

A police spokesman confirmed the report of the theft saying a padlock was clipped from the kennels in Gallamore Lane.

Anyone who may know something is requested to contact the police on 101.
