Yes, Jaycey - Sadly there still are Many like that Lady owner
I very often do as you kindly did - & I know that many others also do the same !
I just wish that 'Frankage' ( safe cages outside shops ) could 'take off'
invented by Owner of Frank the Pug who was Stolen from His dad's Vehicle on Trafford Centre Car park)
A lot of people still aren't aware that dog theft is happening. On Saturday I went to my local supermarket and was shocked as I pushed the trolley towards the doors - there tyed up to a post by its lead was a beautiful pug..She was wearing a really good fur lined coat and looked loved ..I waited with her for 15 minutes until her owner came out with her shopping ..She was gob smacked when I explained about the dangers of leaving dogs tied up nowadays ..She couldn't thank me enough and said she'd die if her fur baby was taken...she assured me shed never leave her again ...I think all supermarkets should have signs outside advising of the dangers!! ..xxLast edited: 2017-12-17 21:52:48 by Jaycey
Just THE BEST News-I did see at the time that Ruby was Home but have been unable to log on until now
& what I typed on 8th Dec DID come true-I just KNEW it would xx
......Come on RubyRoo - You WILL Soon Be Home, Made 2hot2handle - they cannot keep you hidden for ever x .....
WELL DONE #TeamRubyRoo
Huge Thanx to ALL the Local Police Forces for taking this Theft very seriously - I DO Hope that the 'Location' is ReVisited more than once to check for any other Stolen Dogs
What on earth were these 4 (Youngsters were they?) doing at the services ?
I presume this was an 'impulse theft' but they have to be a 'certain type' toEven THINK about Stealing someone's Pet - & even worse when poor Ruby had obvious Signs of a recent op . Grrrrrr
I Wonder if the Motorway Services Group would Consider a HUGE Poster outside ALL of their Shops - WARNING against Leaving Dogs unattended
Many people still do not 'believe' it will 'happen to them' do they - or don't even think about it happening ?
Welcome Home Gorgeous Girl - I DO Hope that You are making a Speedy Recovey
See police did a good job here. Hope they prosecute the thieves.

Darling girl- if there is anything I could do to help, please let me know. I’m hoping the police find this car I know it costs a fair bit of money, but they will do this if you are persistent. They will be able to trace the car with every speed camera or any road cameras!! Sending love to you Ruby Last edited: 2017-12-12 13:44:44 by LucieM
Poor little Ruby - she's really going through it, one way and another. Hope you get her back soon.

Please share the CCTV footage.
I have just watched the cctv footage, how blatant, and how are those children being brought up???
There's an (unconfirmed) sighting of Ruby Glazebury Lancashire - if you know people in that area please ask them to be vigilant.

Someone must recognise the four in the CCTV footage:

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting SC1709369 or contact me directly. ThanksLast edited: 2017-12-11 09:14:46 by Rubyroothedog
Exactly one week since Ruby was stolen. Updates are:
- Police now have vehicle plates, but still searching for car and keeper
- vehicle is believed to be local to Rivington area
- Audi A3, five door, grey
They can’t tell me more at this stage obviously, but are progressing. In the meantime please keep sharing the video, and hopefully Ruby can be returned and these four identified.
On Ruby,s page...Police now have number plate of car..just need to find it x
With such good images of the people who took Ruby I can't believe she hasn't been found. How do you get the cctv to go viral on social media? Those people would be so recognisable to anyone that knew them. So sad.
I am Tweeting for gorgeous RubyRoo once more ,
RTing @LancsPolice too - at least they are Tweeting - many Forces , unfortunately, do NOT - even when they have repeated requests to Help RT a Stolen Pet.
However, Cheshire & Kent & a few others are Exceptions to the rule
Come on RubyRoo - You WILL Soon Be Home, Made 2hot2handle - they cannot keep you hidden for ever x

Still looking for Little-Legged Ruby
Missing five days
Very much missed lovely girl

Lancashire Police Appeal for Info x
The theft in sequence order, from CCTV:
Ohhh, I will go over to Twitter & RT RubyRoo aain now that there is cctv
Yes, good idea Desna - I will see if RubyRoo's Mum is online on Twitter & ask Her now
Hi have you contacted the parking management company? There is normally ANPR recording the date/time/registration number and image of vehicles entering and exiting the services. If you can use the date/time they drove off you could get the reg and trace the owners. You might need to speak to the Police to help you get the parking company to release the information.

CCTV from services (around 6.20 into the video): and here (around 7.50 into the video): and here: edited: 2017-12-06 13:58:45 by Svend
There must be CCTV at the Services...Have police checked this for number plate of car and persons involved xx. Praying she will be found soon.
ohhh, RubyRoo I really thought You would've been Home by now - i was Hoping & praying that these 4 people had picked Her up thinking she had been abandoned - & taken Her to a Vet or Dog Warden - police even
Someone MUST know where She is - a Dog with Shaved patches is certainly not seen very often !
I too have been Tweeting & ReTweeting with Much Hope for Her Safe Return .
