The best news to see this. Whoever has done this needs catching before it happens to someone else. Hope police are following this up XLast edited: 2017-11-30 19:05:32
Welcome home big boy and beautiful Betty xx

Comment from Walters ownerFirst of all I would like to thank all of you for making today possible. With over 15,000 shares my dogs are now home where they belong.
I had a phone call this morning to say two dogs a st and a mastiff were on a farm in Wigan and wondered if just on a long shot they may be mine. I drove down there with little jack in the car and found myself going down a long deserted track into a forest type area. At the bottom was a dead end with a big derelict farm all boarded up. I jumped out the car and whistled, nothing. I thought I'd been set up. I shouted water and heard a bark. It was Walters bark. I jumped the locked up gates and Walter comes flying out of the back of the building with blind Betty following behind. I cannot begin to describe what I was feeling. I tried to pick water up to get him over the gate and couldn't lift him. With that both dogs winched themselves under the gate and straight into the back of my car. I had to reverse all the way up the tiny lane all the way thinking someone was going to come in a minute and take them from me with jack still in the car. As soon as I got onto the road I was crying tears of unimaginable happiness. My dogs were in my car. I took them home and returned back to look for the other missing dog local to where mine were stolen. Had a good route around and rang the missing dogs owner where he came to meet me. My dogs had been kept in a tiny box room full of excrement with just a bucket of water. You could see where walter must have bust the bottom door off to get out. Whoever stole my dogs wanted to keep them alive and well hidden. It was a total hell hole in there. The couple who notified me of the sighting of my dogs will forever be in my heart and I owe them a lifetime of gratitude.
Happy happy for your pets stay safe both of you big hugs and lots of love to them both xx
