saw­illiams@thek­m­group.co.uk Wa­tery Lane, with their moth­ers when they were stolen.

Mr Kennedy be­lieves the theft was pre­med­i­tated as a sec­tion of their fence had been cut a few weeks ago.

He said: “Some­one could have had a look around the house back then, check­ing it out, and then come back on Mon­day night for the theft.

“We think they knew our move­ments. We reckon they came as soon as Julie left on Mon­day evening. The dogs hadn’t even fin­ished all their din­ner.

“The thieves also took a bag of adult dog food, which will be no good for the pup­pies.”

The Kennedys, along with their chil­dren, have been stay­ing at a rented house in Char­ing dur­ing the last few months since their house was deemed un­live­able fol­low­ing a ma­jor fire last April.

At first they were liv­ing in a car­a­van on site, but moved to the house when the weather turned cold.

Mr Kennedy added: “My wife is here ev­ery day and we feed the dogs in the evenings. We reckon some­one must have been watch­ing us.”

The bur­glary took place be­tween 8pm on Mon­day and 8am on Tues­day.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the miss­ing pup­pies is asked to phone po­lice on 101 or Mr Kennedy on 07855 250606.

On Sun­day, five three-week old black and while bor­der col­lie pup­pies were stolen from a park in Fur­nace Lane, Broad Oak in Rye. Call 01424 883489 if you have any in­for­ma­tion.
