The dogs, who look like a mix of collies and hounds, were spotted sleeping on a country lane near Moffat, Dumfriesshire this morning.

Locals took to social media to share pictures to find their owners.

However, four of them were shot after they entered a field and killed a sheep on a nearby farm.

The police were called and were able to save the remaining six dogs. They are now looked after by them, while the officers also establish who they belong to.

In a comment on Moffat Community Support’s Facebook page, Margot McMurdo wrote, “They may have been dumped, which is shocking.”

“They all look like dogs/collies that are often found in sanctuaries. I hope they stay safe.”

Claire Hargreaves wrote: “What a shame. The horrible person who dumped her put her in this position.”

“If they hadn’t been there, they wouldn’t have been shot!”

Other locals said they saw similar dogs roaming around town late Saturday night.

“Four of the dogs were shot and killed as a result of this incident.

“Officials have cared for and safely secured six of the dogs being cared for at local kennels.

“The investigation into the incident is ongoing.”
