This incident comes little over a month after Gwent Police issued a warning following a spate of dog thefts, in which working dog breeds across the force area were taken.
Between July 26 and July 29, 12 dogs were stolen from across the Gwent Police force area in three separate incidents, with 11 spaniels and a Jack Russell being taken.
One of these incidents, in Newport, saw six spaniels being stolen from outdoor kennels at a property.
