Have these men been caught?
Someone must have picked up the dog from them

Annamaria forget the first one just deport them
That way the tax payers pay less
The government are too easy
We also have too many do gooders
My rant over
Annamaria
If I were in charge the theives would be thrown in a prison and then deported! Xxx

Fantastic news. .Really hope the return of his beloved puppy helps his young owner recover from his ordeal..It makes you wonder now just how many other stolen/missing dogs are on these Romanian selling sites! .. We need to get some advice on which sites they are and start to plough through them and keep on checking them!..Hope the Police are also looking in to this, in the hope of making an arrest for Willows theft.. Hope the family have a lovely weekend now their missing family member is back..x♥xLast edited: 2017-04-30 11:40:17 by Jaycey

Which Romanian site was it on as I check other sites. When i see dogs lost/missing/stolen I direct them here to doglost but give them other sites to look at as well. I can add this to my list if someone can tell me which one it is please.
BigGSDPatlucky
That would be brilliant Kit'sMum
That lovely lady worked wonders
If that dog was sold on might be a different story
Please keep looking that lovely lady
You made a young lad and his family very very happyxx
Kit'sMum
This is really excellent news and I hope everybody recovers quickly from this experience. I didn't know or even think about Romanian selling sites, but maybe someone bilingual English/Romanian could check them regularly for lost dogs?

A Romanian woman saw her being sold on a Romanian selling site and alerted the owners family.
DogLostClaireC - Area Volunteer, Buckinghamshire
So very pleased and relieved to see this little pup back in her rightful arms. So sad to think a 16 yr old boy cannot take the family pet out, albeit carried in his arms to allow the puppy the experiences of different sights and sounds and remain safe! Stay safe and extra special close when you go out again and enjoy each other as you should be allowed to do! XxLast edited: 2017-04-28 17:09:17 by ClaireC - Area Volunteer, Buckinghamshire

Fantastic news , have been following her online. So pleased she is safe back with the owner. Do hope Police catch the scum that stole her. too many being stolen at the present time sadly xx

Fantastic news that Willow is reunited, I hope she is well and unhurt. I am hoping that there will be leads to identify the thieves and bring them to justice?

I have seen it as well saying Willow is home, Great news.
DogLostcjhinton - Area Volunteer, Devon
Just seen a post on a FB group saying Willow has been found after being spotted being sold online... group is Yorkshire animals lost & found
Lashram
Here's a thought. I might be watching too many crime programmes but here goes. If the thieves touched the lad why can't the police do a forensic of the lads clothing?
Lashram
Thanks Lisa. Silly me didn't see it. What a sorry state we are in where we have gone from mugging old ladies for their handbags to mugging vulnerable and young people for their pet dog.Shameful! There are enough staffies in rescue centres and being given away for free on advert sites without resorting to stealing. Organised criminal gangs are at the heart of this for profit only.Last edited: 2017-04-28 11:47:33 by Lashram

Agree with your comments LindaT

Presumably the cctv image has been able to read the van numberplate? Scum who have no respect for animals or other humans deserve to have a community service sentence clearing litter and be made to take their punishment in this way rather than taxpayers having to pay for them to go to prison where they live the life of riley. That`s if and when they get caught and punished I should say! I hope this puppy is found safe and unharmed, God knows what scum like this have in their pin-brain minds. I hope the lad is OK, very frightening situation.
Lashram
People carrier van. Possibly used to carry worshippers or big families to "church". Maybe posting to shops and places of worship may be an idea. Good people abhor theft of any kind. They will only be too happy to help.
Lashram
I have been warning people of this kind of theft. Thieves are also using drones to target dogs in their own gardens. Even dog sitters are stealing dogs by saying the owner gave them the dog. We need to be more vigilant to thwart these criminals. Poor lad will be traumatised by the incident let alone the dog poor thing. Hope there is good news soon.

Me too,I really hope that poor puppy is alright,throwing it into the can is not a doglover
Is the a picture if the van?Or one like it?I really hope police have a lead.Shocking world we live in and unless the laws are getting tougher it just doesn't seem to get better,but worse

Janejewel a Thunderclap is a social media platform thing. It means that at a given time a message will appear on all the supporters timeline, twitter feeds etc at exactly the same time. When it goes out the picture and the message in the blue box is what is posted.

If anyone then clicks on it they are de-directed to the end link (In Willows case that end link will bring them here) Very often when they arrive they also reshare again.

Its just a way to highlight things . We get the stats of the ones we put in and Willow is doing really well xx
Seeks
Still nothing but she has just been in the paper... Will get you the link a min xx

I was just coming to ask if there was any CCTV cameras
Fingers crossed
Kym
Hi everyone, thanks for all ur help and support. Just to let u know the police are finally calling on Monday after tea to speak to Brad which is when I can then get the CRN. The post office who said they would look at cameras should have done so by now so will call and find out today. Also the junction are free to sit with me on Monday morning to rewind their cameras to see if their is anything which will be of use when police come later in the day. Will keep u posted and thanks again . Kym xxxxxxxx 🐶

How disgusting. You are brave aren`t you; cowardly cretins. Keep making Willow "TOO HOT TO HANDLE" Posters posters, Fb. police obviously. ANY CCTV IN THE AREA, WHICH MAY HAVE PICKED UP A REGISTRATION NUMBER? All xd.

If anyone has any suspicions at all of where Willow is or maybe yopu have seen a dog matching Willow`s description, with people you think she does not belong to please contact Doglost. It will be treated in the strictest confidence.. Also how about a TV or radio appeals? Let us get Willow home. and get these morons prosecuted. Last edited: 2017-04-21 12:53:01 by janiejewel1649

This is Willow. She was bought for my son. On Bank Holiday Monday at 6.15pm at the Bottom end of Ramsden Road (town end) at Hexthorpe my son was walking her on some grass on the bend next to the Eden Grove waste ground and behind the junction (previously a pub) close to the shops. A blue van with windows down each side which he seems to think was a Renault the size of a transit pulled up next to him , 2 Asian men got out and asked if they could buy her. When refused they pinned my son (16) up against the railing and pulled the pup by her collar (squealing) from his arms and slung her in the bk of the van before speeding off. As u can imagine we are devastated and are offering a substantial reward for information and her safe return home where she belongs. Thankyou and please share this if u will please.
