Pug stolen at dog show be­fore be­ing re­turned

Evening Times - - NEWS -

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.
