As a result of a publication on an online social network about the disappearance of a “Weimaraner” breed, an investigation into the crime of theft was reported, relating to the existence of other reports of dog thefts in the district of Faro.

During the police raids, it was possible for the police, through surveillance and reading of the identification chip, to locate and identify the missing dog along with the five puppies in a neighbourhood of Albufeira.

The dogs were safely collected and handed over to the rightful owner.
