Police have released a video showing three people officers want to speak to after eight dachshunds were taken from a property near Swadlincote.
Three male and five female miniature wire-haired dachshunds - which police say they pedigree show dogs and worth a "substantial amount of money" - were stolen from Burton Road in Acresford between 23:30 and midnight last Wednesday.
Derbyshire Police said one dog has since been found "safe and well" in Cambridgeshire, with inquiries "ongoing into how it came to be in the area".

Lisa Dean, from a lost and stolen pet volunteer group called Beauty's Legacy, said a member of the public saw one of the dogs by the roadside in the Huntingdon area of Cambridgeshire this morning.

Ms Dean said the owner was "elated but terrified for the welfare of the other dogs".
The dog had lost a quarter of her body weight in the time she had been missing, Ms Dean added.
