NEED TO REHOME YOUR DOG? ADVERTISE YOUR DOG HERE FREE
Dogs are stolen and end up in stray dog pounds miles from home. If they are not claimed within 7 days they can be rehomed or killed. Hundreds of 'stray' dogs are rehomed or killed every week because their owner cannot be identified. You have no right to claim the dog after 7 days. A microchip can also be used to prove that the dog is yours if ownership is disputed. Click here for more information. Your dog is valuable to you - and to thieves! Dogs and puppies are being stolen everyday. Check how many dogs go 'missing' from gardens!
Walk your dog on a lead at all times. Do not leave your dog unattended in the garden. It is better not to put your dog in the garden at all as they can become targets. If your dog lives outside you should consider bringing it inside as dogs can easily be removed from locked kennels (see notices below). See the reports below of dogs 'missing' from gardens. Have your dog microchipped. It is likely to be the only way your dog will be returned to you if it is stolen and dumped. Dogs go missing from gardens, often at night. Houses are broken into and the dog is stolen. Dogs are stolen from unattended cars (see notices below). Dogs often go missing the same day that 'travellers' move on. All dogs can be sold or 'held for ransom' so do not assume your dog is not a target. THIS PAGE UPDATED 5th March 2018

20th April Foxy Needs Your Help - Reading, Berks
Foxy is a 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier cross. Foxy was rescued from a council pound as an unclaimed stray. We wondered why anyone would dump such a lovely natured dog. Two weeks after he was adopted the vet diagnosed that he has Legg-Calve-Perthes disease - click here for more information. This is where the blood supply to the head of the femur bone is interrupted and the bone dies. Click here to see more photo's of Foxy. He has had this condition for over 2 years but he is very good at disguising it. If the pound or the rescue vet had discovered this problem before Foxy was adopted he would have been put to sleep. His adopter is going to try and save his life but needs your help to pay for the operation to removed the damaged bone so that Foxy is no longer in pain.

Greyhounds and Lurchers Needing Homes
Dorset Police report 129456: On Saturday 7th November in Swanage, a man described to be in his early 20s with short brown hair and wearing blue tracksuit bottoms, a blue jumper and a body warmer was seen to go into a garden and place a bowl of food on the ground in order to entice the dog over. The man was then seen to pick the family dog up and attempt to walk off with it. He was challenged and left the dog in the garden. Previously to this, there has been a report of a similar incident in the Winterbourne Valley area of Dorchester. We have had reports of a Grey VW Transporter van - click here for photo, driving on foreign plates (first three digits being 141 - see update below), being spotted in the Winterborne Valley area recently, as well as the Purbeck Police area, acting suspiciously around dogs and their owners. These people are looking to steal your dogs possibly to use them as bait for fighting dogs. Please remember that any description you can obtain of the drivers, occupants or even better the vehicle registration will make enquiries easier for the Police. Please keep your dogs safe and secure. If you see anyone or anything suspicious then please call 101 as soon as possible. From a witness (click here for more info): The number plate has been given on a few occasions as 141 D 1129 (Dublin registration). The men are Irish and were trying to sell a generator whilst asking questions about the resident dogs. If you see this van phone the Police immediately because unless they can catch them in the act of committing a crime they are not interested. Please be alert to these incidents and keep your dogs safe. Walk your dog on a lead at all times. Do not leave your dog unattended in the garden. It is better not to put your dog in the garden at all as they can become targets. If your dog lives outside you should consider bringing it inside as dogs can easily be removed from locked kennels (see notices below). See the reports below of dogs 'missing' from gardens.

A burglar who stole a dog and posted a picture of it on Facebook afterwards has been jailed for 19 months. Click here to see the full story.
Click here to see the video This will not be the first time these thieves have stolen and it will not be the last. There are thieves operating in your area. The dogs were recovered. Precautions to keep your dog safe:
Keep the gates to your property shut.
If you discover intruders on your property make sure your dogs are locked inside because the thieves will return.
Do not let your dogs wander where they can be seen from the road or public footpath.
Keep your dogs inside, not in an outside kennel or place where they are alone.
Thieves are particularly interested in Sighthounds, Spaniels and Terriers but they will take any dog regardless of age.
Unwanted stolen dogs have been dropped from moving vehicles on motorways. Stolen dogs recovered by the Police have died days later.
Do not allow admittance to people who call wanting to 'trim your tree or hedge'. These people pass on information to the thieves about the dogs on the property.
Do not let your dogs follow you to the door where they can be seen by callers.
Do not leave your dog tied up outside a shop.
Keep your dog in sight when out walking. Thieves will send their dog to your dog then whistle their dog back to them and grab your dog when it follows.
Make sure your dog is microchipped and the information is up-to-date. It may be the only reason why you get your dog back.
If your dog is valuable to you then it is valuable to a thief - KEEP YOUR DOG SAFE.
