Two dogs have been found dead and dumped by the roadside after being stolen from a rural Victorian property.

The Jack Russell terriers, three-year-old Sassy and six-month-old Buzzy, were outside a property at Moliagul, about 60 kilometres west of Bendigo, with their owner on Sunday when a ute pulled up.

The driver of the white ute, which had a damaged tray, opened the door and stole the dogs before fleeing.

A member of the public discovered the dogs dead along the side of the Wimmera Highway about six kilometres away on Monday.

Police have released an image of a similar-style white ute and are calling for help to track down the driver.
