UPDATE from Marco’s owner...
**HOME AT LAST!!**

Very, very happy to share that Marco has been recovered and is now at home catching up on as much love and TLC as we can give him 💖🐾

I must start with the biggest thank you to Norfolk Constabulary and the amazing work of police teams in other counties, who rescued him!

After seven weeks of desperately hoping and wishing, we are thrilled to finally have Marco back - and judging by his waggy tail and tippy-tappy happy feet, he’s missed his family too!

To everyone that has posted and shared his pictures and our posters, and reposted and reshared - thank you so much. I received countless messages of support, not to mention potential leads and possible matches - I have been amazed by the work of the social media communities, and the efforts of kind people who try each and everyday to bring missing pets (of all shapes and sizes!) home to their families.

Also, thank you to EDP Norfolk and Wymondham and Attleborough Mercury for your articles on Marco’s disappearance - they were so helpful in spreading the message across the county.

For now, it’s off the bathtub, followed by a much-needed nap for our little fluffball! 🐾

Thanks for explaining FrancescaW ~ Don't lose hope, many dogs make it home it just takes longer for some than others x

Hi Sharon; when we first discovered Marco was missing, we didn’t know if he had been stolen in the burglary, or ran away frightened as the burglars tore the home apart. Our house was one of 14 to have been burgled on the same day, and the police believe the break ins are all connected - however ours is unique in that it is the only one that a dog was taken from. It could be that due to his small size, they thought he’d be a cute little addition to their family, or an easy sale - or it could be that they let him out the door and he’s roaming the streets/fields. We think it’s unlikely that he would leave home without his other two doggy siblings though - who were both still hiding in the house when we arrived home to the chaos.

So in regards to your original question, we and the police still do not know for sure if Marco was stolen - however we do know for certain that he is missing, and we are still searching resale sites and lost dog forums for any sign of him. We are urging anyone who has recently purchased an older Pomeranian, or knows someone who has, to ensure they have been scanned for a microchip, in case it’s him. The police are also keenly pursuing leads, just in case it opens avenues of enquiry into the burglary itself, or leads them directly to those responsible!

More and more people have approached us following the articles in the press and online - it is really comforting to have the support and encouragement from so many kind people. I never knew there was such a community out here to help unfortunate dogs get back to their loving families! I’m still holding out hope that we will be able to add a big ‘reunited!’ banner to all our posts soon - but until then, please keep sharing and looking out for our little fluffball!

Much love,

Francesca

Why is Marco not on as stolen, given the police have shared an appealed ?
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
Marco's story is featured in the local newspaper, hopefully this will bring some news...

Thank you for sharing sharon57blue - unfortunately the Pomeranian with the warden is not Marco.

Please keep searching online and in person - we and the police believe that he is still out there! We will not give up on our little fluffball!

The Norfolk police have put out an appeal today to help us find Marco - please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you think you might know or have seen something - however small or silly it might seem!

Thank you to everyone who has shared and searched with us - we can only keep hoping that he will be home with us again soon!

Fresh appeal for Marco from the Norfolk Police.
https://www.norfolk.police.uk/news/latest-news/15-08-2019/appeal-help-trace-dog-following-burglary?fbclid=IwAR3X46UAZAxlFJigMWV_lIUDmSjMceytK329ZrPIHNoBpvltR3gvL9kyhHk

Police are appealing for help to trace a dog which is believed to have been stolen during a burglary in Wymondham.

A property in Stanfield Road was broken into between 4.30pm and 6pm on Wednesday 31 July and jewellery and cash were stolen.

Following the burglary the owners of the property also discovered their Pomeranian dog, Marco, was missing and officers are investigating the possibility that the dog was also stolen.

Police are keen to trace the dog in order to reunite it with its owners and are appealing for anyone who may have seen it – or witnessed any suspicious activity in the area around the time of the burglary - to come forward.

Officers would particularly like to hear from anyone who saw a man, described as white, of average build and wearing a dark top, driving a maroon coloured van in the area on Wednesday 31 July.

Anyone with information should contact DC Robert Blade at Norwich CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Thank you for letting me know - I spoke to the finders last night, and happy to say that that little white pom in Rochdale has found it’s owner again. Sadly for us, it does mean that Marco is still out there waiting to come home!
