Hannah Denniff issued an emotional plea after seven border collie pups aged just nine weeks were taken from Holmesfield, in Derbyshire, on Friday.

Her appeal was shared by police in Sheffield, who urged people to 'keep an eye out for these cuties'.

But Hannah says five of the dogs have since been found in a box five miles from home, though the remaining two are believed to be still missing.
