Bitter-sweet news indeed, although the fact you have closure must be a comfort in some ways.  So happy you are going to keep the babies who you have back ....... wishing them all a long and happy life after their tragic start.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Run free at the bridge little ones. welcome home to the 3 who made it back.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Welcome home to the three surviving puppies, but so sorry about the ones that have sadly not made it.  Run free at bridge little ones and sweet dreams, such a waste of a young life.  Jan xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Just to say I now have Dynamite, Dee?s Dazzler and Dark n Stormy back at home, my babies will spend the rest of their lives here with me. Sadly their sisters and brother walked over the Rainbow Bridge where I know they are safe and running freely around. I would like to thank all of you at Doglost for your support, kindness and more than all your strength, I never gave up, I never lost the belief that they were out there, and I would find them somewhere, somehow. Once again my up-most gratitude to you all, CarolineLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
So pleased you have three back again, but so sorry for the others xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Brilliant that three are now back where they belong but so sad the other didn't make it - well done for never giving up on these guys, joy clouded by sadness.  My thoughts are with you.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I'm so sorry that your little boy didn't make it home to you, feel so sad, I hope that the people that stole your puppies get just what they deserve!!!  Kind RegardsILast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
hurry safely home dear Diesel p.g.xxxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Buffysmum, just picked up your post. You are dead right about good breeders having a waiting list. I don't know what advertising went on with this litter but like I say, websites do have their downside, and unfortunately we live in a sad world where good and bad are logging on! Sadly the high priced Bulldog puppy, even sold without papers, is all too appealing to the thief. How tragic if these pups were being hand reared although perhaps the bitch won't be quite as upset as she might have been. Hindsight and all that, but howcome these babies were left alone? Still this isn't the time to be pointing fingers. I pray that they will be found, as perhaps it might stop others being targetted, if these people are caught.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
so sad to read about these pups..please look on vivastreet.co.uk bulldog pups gone on within last week and a couple state no papers, good luck and I really hope this a quick and happy ending for all. xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I have just listen to the talk sport show, I was not aware that the pups was being hand reared if this was the case someone should have been with them pups. And yes a good breeder would not have to advertise it such a big way they would be able to do this by word of mouth. If you put yourself in the limelight make sure you have very good security to back it up. someone should have been with them pups all night you never know what can happen with them. I do hope they get them back. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Quite agree with your comments, I had to go on a waiting list for my last dog (some of the show people had been on the list for four years, waiting for the right puppy!) I so hope that they get these babies back and also Jenny's springer pups which were virtually the same age as these pups.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I agree with Buffysmum, she has a very valid point,Oz Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
BassetsRUS, you are right about the websites being a double edged sword but after discussing with a few fellow breeders (different breeds) if your dogs are quality you should not need to advertise because people that are serious about owning a good well bred dog will seek you out at shows or have friends that own the same breed. Good breeders always have a list of potential owners waiting for a pup.People should be doing their homework and when you are paying in the region of ?1800 plus you cannot afford to make a mistake. Have just heard owner on TalkSport and apparently even at 4.5 weeks old these pups were being hand reared every two hours. Hope she gets a lead from this.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Email from owner, today she will be live on Talk Sport with presenter Jon Gaunt here is the link and you can listen live http://www1.talksport.net/shows/show.asp?showId=100539Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I've just been emailed about this theft via another source. Horrified doesn't describe how I reacted, especially given the age of these babies. Seems to me that much as people don't list their addresses on show schedules any more, websites are a double-edged sword. You have to advertise your puppies, but you are alerting everybody to the fact you have puppies. So what to do - for a start if I had this breed, I'd be camped out 24/7 and I'd have a big guard dog by my side. For sure, elimination of potential suspects would have to start with people who 'knew' there was a litter there. Worries me that obviously staff had seen people around - so why wasn't security increased? Hindsight is a wonderful thing however. I just hope these babies don't vanish into goodness knows where, like the other litter seems to have done. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

So, so sorry to hear this. Posters are now displayed in my car (CV2) Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Sorry to hear that these little mites have been stolen and I sincerely hope they get back home soon. Maybe they have been taken for the reward money, which is more than they would get by selling them without papers. If security was tight then it was not tight enough. Maybe a bit more security and a little less flashy websites would make for a less likely target.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
So sorry to hear of these babies being stolen,hope they are all returned very soon safe and wellxxxpolly i gather now these puppies are red hot so hopefully the skum who stole them will hand them overLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I'm so sorry to hear of your break-in and the pups being stolen. I know what you're going through, I too had a litter stolen in January. These people are very determined, they broke into the house at 1.45am whilst I was in there asleep! Have you contacted Bulldog rescue? david.stonehouse4@ntlworld.com they're very helpfull and can spread the net wider. It will have been a specific target to steal the pups, try to think of anyone coming to do a recce as it sounds very much like it was quite a well planned attack. I will keep my eyes and ears open down this neck of the woods. Keep strong. JackieLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

You are absolutely right Granitecitygirl!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I've looked on the breeders website and I'm thinking that's how the thieves found out about the pups. A lot of information about the premises are kept on the website so who knows, the vehicle details may come up false and the thieves probably wore masks. You can also find out about litters that have been registered recently on the kennel club website. So although this info is great for folk looking for a responsibley & well bred dog, it can also take the thieves right to the door of the breeder. My heart goes out to this breeder and I hope the net closes soon on these awful people.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Owner does have CCTV footage which is now in the care of the police. Security at the owners premises is very tight. CCTV shows a vehicle driving up to the electric gates, then reversing back out earlier in the day. The same vehicle was sighted nearby by employees later that day. Thieves came in the early hours, left vehicle opposite, went around the perimeter, and entered from the rear of the property, smashing small windows (so small an adult wouldnt fit through). The accomplices remained in the nearby fields using flash lights to guide the thieves safely back to the perimeter. Details of the vehicle or thieves have not been released yet.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Have the Bulldog Club of Ireland been notified? I mentioned once before that a lot of stolen animals end up in Ireland as they are easier to sell on. And vice versa a lot of Irish animals end up over here on the UK mainland.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
