The Dogmother

Calling all those in the New Forest - dog stolen *UPDATE*

Recommended Posts

That is just so depressing and upsetting :cry:

If anyone of you has a hairy lurcher for goodness sake keep them close to you at all times. They really are at a premium :!::!:

Thanks Sandie, I am very careful with my two and usually let them off-lead away from other folks. Cyrus wears a falconry bell on his collar when he's out - he tends to sling a deaf ear when he's rabbiting :roll: and it helps to know where he is.

Pedigree dogs are always game for dog knappers but people often forget that non pedigrees who have 'the cute effect' whether hairy lurchers (like one of your dogs - Dogmother) or wiry Jack Russells are equally at risk. It really does help, however, if they are neutered. It helps even more if they look a little old, both things radically reducing their re-sale value. So if you have a young, cute looking dog, you do need to be so very careful and, by the way, never ever put the dog's name on his tag - just your name and post code and mobile phone number. Those little tags that say the dog is microchipped are also good, especially the red ones that really show up :)

Would it be possible to have a tracker implanted if it were affordable :?: Reading this thread makes me think this would be a good option if it was available. I would consider it of I had a dog.

I don't know, you can certainly get tracker collars, they are expensive and can obviously be removed.

 

I suspect that anything affordable would be too big to be implanted TBH

Great advice Cheaky Chook. Tango has been microchipped and wears her (unfortunately not red) microchip tag on her collar, along with her ID tag which does not have her name on it. Tango has not been spayed yet (that's her treat for the new year :lol: ) but when she is, I will probably get a new tag with 'neutered' on it as it's not so immediately obvious with the girlies and anything that might deter a dog knapper can only be a good thing.

 

So sad to hear about these two latest dogs who have been stolen :(
