Have checked with finder of dog in Motspur Park and it's not Trigger I'm afraid :(
Are Trigger's chip details definitely up-to-date. Had this posted to Doglost Surrey today: lovely Brown male staffie walked into work today with no owner.Has microchip but all info is wrong.West Barnes lane motspur park
Jaycey, I think it's a very good idea for Tesco and other businesses to put signs up outside warning owners not to leave their dogs tied up outside the shops. They may not have thought of this ...Maybe this could do with a petition or a direct communication with the businesses concerned
Yes I agree with all the comments, more publicity is needed to prevent this happening in the first place. Hindsight is a wonderful thing but forewarned is forearmed is so much better. I hope Trigger is found very soon. Owner do return to where Trigger was taken at dusk and dawn if you can, in case he got free from the thief.
i find its a complete waste of time warning people of the risk they take leaving dogs tied up outside shops - u get 1 of 2 responses = I will only be a couple of minutes = or they look at me as thought i am a lunatic

A reward is now offered for Trigger's return.

Please keep sharing for trigger!
Whenever I see a dog tied up outside our large supermarket I just have to hang around sheepishly until the owner comes out! I may look suspicious but I can't help myself!!
There should be tougher penalties for dog thieves.
I do thst too Doglover, and have stopped outside shops whilst eh owner goes into a shop. There should be hrsher penalties for dog theft.
Hi Mary, I think that people who do not do Doglost or follow any of the dog groups on facebook, are not aware of the problem of dog theft and I think that is why Media coverage is so important so that we can make people aware...I often stand outside shops with dogs that are tied up and try and warn the owners of the current problem. xx
Reggiemollieros it would be great if there was an article in the standard. I can't be the only one who is amazed that people are leaving their dogs tied up outside shops in central London.
According to Triggers owner on the news discusdion..Trigger is the 5th dog to be stolen from outside that branch of Tesco in 8 months..So why haven't Tesco put signs up for owners to see, advising not to leave dogs unattended!!.. Hooe the publicity brings good news..CCTV showed he was dragged away by a women!
Sincerley hope Trigger is reunited very soon. Was CCTV of any help at all? Keep making Trigger "TOO HOT TO HANDLE" Paws xd.Last edited: 2017-06-13 20:09:51 by janiejewel1649

Trigger is the lucky boy who will appear on Channel 5 news at 6.30pm.
Trigger now has his own page on facebook.....Find Trigger.
Thank you Doglover. Yes I saw Butler was found.
Hopefully the info shared might help Trigger.
I am sharing Trigger on twittter x
Butler has been found...see his post...
Mrs Mop
Thank you Reggie. I will suggest owner gets in touch with Butler's owner. Seems to be a pattern here.
Diane another dog, Butler, a westie was stolen outside M&S at Notting Hill. Could be same person. I have tweeted Trigger & Butler's poster to the Standard. Also Newton was stolen from other side of Holland Park 27/5.
Maybe the Standard or another paper would do an article.
I suggested to Butler's owner to contact Doglost's PR Nikki - email and see if they can forward your email.

I do not expect a quick reply from the Met as recent events will take priority to this. All we can do is advise owner and helpers to keep a look out for possible matches.

MET POLICE...HAVE SEEN CCTV.... ..I will email CJ. X
Reggie ..thank you xxx Police apparently are not being very helpful...shame as so many dogs being stolen lately and especially in London x
Yes Doglover, the response was fast and got a lot of shares and a dose of luck. .
Still no two dogs are the same. So am ever hopeful Trigger will turn up safe and well.
I will keep sharing on Twitter xx

Thanks for sharing everyone.
Mrs Mop
Thanks for sharing everyone.
Reggie I am sharing to as many groups as possible and spreading the yes hopefully, but Trigger went missing on 27th May and owner had not put any contact information on her post....but he is being shared now. X
Poor Trigger. Hioe he gets as much publicity as Pancho who was stolen outside Waitrose Kings Cross. They got him back quite quickly.
I will share on Twitter.

Mrs Mop
Thanks, have texted your advice to owner.
TracyBDCH we were rubbisj when Pups was stolen and since then have found out what we should have done...

Get the owner to contact Doglost and ask if CJ the Police Coord can help (CJ is very good at getting the police to act)

Often saying your going to put in a formal complaint can help get them to move on it all...

We also found Social Media pressure can help...We did it our selves though we only got promises that help would be given & nothing was done even that was an improvement.....We used it one & a half years after Pups was stolen and it was the very first time the police even said they would do something...We know they didn't bother but then had we done it at the start we would have kept the pressure on them to make them honour the promises....If we do ever find Pups we are looking into a civil action now but for us its all to late. For Trigger its not so best thing is to ask CJ on Doglost to help... Her advice will be better than mine ;-) xx
