It follows the recovery of four of the breed of dog stolen in the East Midlands two months ago, at addresses in the region in the past four days. The five dogs - one male and four female - were stolen when thieves raided their kennels in the village of South Kilworth in Leicestershire, more than 100 miles away from where they were found, on Wednesday, February 17. They are members of the only pack of working English basset hounds in the county. Since then a huge social media campaign has been running appealing for information about their whereabouts. And it has now been confirmed that four have been recovered this week after tip-offs from locals in Greater Manchester. Greater Manchester Police (GMP) yesterday revealed two of the dogs were recovered at an address in Wigan on Monday.

A group who have been co-ordinating the campaign to find them on behalf of the dogs' owners said they received a call regarding a possible sighting and worked with police in both Leicestershire and Greater Manchester. Then, on Monday, another witness also spoke with Beauty's Legacy - a voluntary group who help reunite lost and found animals with their owners - prior to the second discovery. Today a spokeswoman for the group said the dogs were “in the process of being reunited with their owners.” She said their owners were relieved to have them back but that they had “lost drastic amounts of weight and sustained injuries.” And she said fears were growing for 18 month old female Bashful, who has still not been found. The Leigh neighbourhood policing team today issued an appeal for information about Bashful. In a post this afternoon they said: “The attached image is an outstanding stolen dog from a burglary in Leicestershire. “This follows yesterday's post regarding two Basset Hounds being recovered by officers.

Social media can be a really powerful tool in situations like these. “I just want to thank everyone who got behind it and came to us with information. I think people are getting braver about doing that now. “The police have also been phenomenal, in both Leicestershire and Manchester and have worked together to help us get these dogs back. “But we don’t want people to take their foot off the pedal. “We are asking them to be extremely alert particularly in the Greater Manchester area and to keep a lookout for this final missing dog.”
