Police from the Hume Police District are alerting dog owners in the area to be mindful of securing their working dogs, after three separate dog thefts in the Goulburn and Taralga areas over the last three weeks.

The precious pooches that were pinched include, an eight-month-old, yellow and white-coloured male Kelpie and three five-month-old red Kelpie puppies.

Two of the Kelpie puppies are male and have tan-coloured legs, while the third is female and has a white-coloured neck and front legs.

Police are urging the community to be vigilant when looking after pets and to keep them safe and secure.

As inquiries continue, anyone with information, or who may be offered a pup for sale, is urged to come forward.

Please contact Rural Crime Investigation Detective, Senior Constable Mick Calleja at Goulburn Police Station on 02 4824 0799 or alternatively Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 if you wish to remain anonymous.
