No news before you get excited but suggestion that you post this onto/create a facebook page immediately. There was a staffie puppy stolen recently - and the owner got him back by the FB page. The dog became too hot to handle - it did take a few weeks but the page really took off - posters were put everywhere and puppy finally came home

Thanks, have suggested it to the owner. Her son is a techie so hopefully get it up and running shortly!

All suggestions appreciated x

Ditto the advice for a FB page, and as much publicity as possible. Try and get local newspapers/radio stations to run an article, and put posters everywhere. I think Dog Lost will put stolen dogs on their listings and that will get there details out nationwide. Also worth contacting the weekly dog papers Dog World and Our Dogs, and possibly shooting papers as well as they are springers.

Thanks MM.

Some further details:

Owner was conned and assaulted, thief has been caught on cctv with 2 accomplices. Owner does have a lead but needs police to follow it up and they're being useless.

Can you get a copy of the pic from the CCTV? with the stolen Staffy pup, the owner found an image of the pup being taken away by the 2 pigs who stole him. This was put on FB and helped her to track the revolting individuals who had taken her dog.

Yep, they are in the back of the owners car, travelling home as I type. They were dumped and handed in to a vets, following all the publicity on news sites, FB, Twitter, Doglost and all of the other sites. No doubt there will be happy reunion pictures soon!

Thank you all so much for your help, I know some HHOers have been helping, I've recognised some user names on other forums. The owner has been overwhelmed by all the support she's received.

For everyone else looking for missing/stolen animals, there has been some great advice on here. Don't give up.

Thank you all again for your support xx

It is great news. I don't want to say too much publicly, for obvious reasons, but a confirmed name has been given to police....

Very pleased, he put owners through hell, just hope pups are OK and not picked up any ''nasties''

They've been checked over and outwardly fine, but obviously no idea what they may have been exposed to, so they can't go back with their mum and litter mates. It's a shame, but at least they're safe and they are *just* old enough to cope without mum.

Just hope the police act on what they've been given...
