Cape Town - Authorities are looking for the South African owners of dozens of dogs that were smuggled across the border into Namibia.

Beeld reported that Namibian police stopped Angolan men in three vehicles after a member of the public alerted them to the overcrowded cars.

Ten dogs were reportedly found in a Ford Bantam bakkie and another 10 were found in a trailer hooked to a Jeep Cherokee, heading for Angola.

It was unclear how many dogs were found to have been smuggled across the border - one article stated that up to 38 dogs had been taken across the border.

The men apparently had import and export permits as well as vaccination certificates from the state veterinarian in South Africa.

An internet search is now being done for the owners of the dogs, which include Huskys, ridgebacks, German shepherds, Boerbuls and Rottweilers.  

The SPCA and social media have also been involved as well as the Facebook group Lost and Found Dogs South Africa.

Some of the dogs have been identified as having been stolen in Cape Town.

Anyone who believes their dog might be one of the smuggled hounds can contact Chief Inspector Kamite in Namibia at + 264 81 643 8742.
