Pug stolen at dog show before being returned
A PUG breeder told of her 24 hours of heartbreak after brazen thieves snatched her puppy from a dog show – before it was returned to her by a mysterious couple.
Sue Lee, 69, travelled from her home in Sheffield to a dog show in Lanark to take part in an agility trial with her eight-monthold pug puppy, Tabitha.
But her hopes of a fun day out with other dog trainers were dashed when her little pet was swiped by two women when Sue’s back was turned.
She faced a heart-wrenching 24 hours with no idea who had taken Tabitha, or whether the puppy, worth around £1200 had come to harm or been sold on.
She reported Tabitha missing within minutes of the theft at the Scottish Pug Dog Club Championship.
Police did attend the venue, but it was the power of social media which brought Tabitha back to her distraught owner.
