Sorry to see Bowie is still missing. I wish these evil, thieving people would keep their hands off other people`s pets. These people are selfishness personified. Grrrr.... Really hope Bowie will soon be back where she belongs. Paws, and fingers xd.
Hi there, I am sorry to hear that your dog has been stolen. If you are interested, we are forming a group to have a meeting with police officers covering the south east to highlight the fact that dog theft in our area is a problem. My dog was stolen in April and it has been hard to get the support of the authorities. Please contact me at jodie.coller@ntlworld.com if you would like to be involved. Best wishes Jodie

Aunt Steph, thank you for letting me know. I have texted SanBarn as I know she worked so hard on these two. Poor little mites. Some evil "people" out there. So glad we have little Dave back and so praying little Bowie gets home safe too. These were puppies and the state of Dave now, is beyond comprehension. Get well soon precious, you are home now. x
Was so pleased to see Dave home, lets hope Bowie follows soon.? What has happened to the "lady" has anything been done about her? Wishing Dave a good recovery. xx

Bowie's little brother "Dave" was found yesterday in the Dulwich area SE21 & is now in our REUNITED section . Link :
Dave is ok & will be seeing a vet but is extremely thin,has a very sore infected ear,fleas & probably a UTI. He is not in good condition at all. I am bumping little Bowie so that she can be found too hopefully. Someone stole these two pups 8/9 months ago in October 2012 . They have either sold them on or kept them & allowed at least one of them to become very unwell.My worry is now for poor little Bowie.
Please look out for her & if anyone can put up posters or distribute flyers in the Dulwich area this would be very much appreciated.Let's find this other poor little mite. Thank you. X

That's lovely. So hoping these babies get home soon, too. x
Just to inform you all... Out of this bad situation, my little bluecat Peppa has given birth to 3 kitten. :-)
It's make me always happy to see new creatures coming into the world. Peppa hid them in my wardrobes. LOL.. I had to get warm blanket to avoid getting the little one sick from the cold wood floor. After all the bad luck i have, its nice to see a little glimmer of hope to give more love to the animals in needs. I pray everyday that Bowie and Dave are getting back to me one day.

Thanks poochpal. yes please do not publish addresses and be careful what is said as will have effect on any proceedings.
I have not looked at your facebook but again please remove any deatils .
I have sent all this to an officer in the metropolitan she is off duty for 3 days but said it is her area so will be looking at this and i think making a visit to you.

Its a nasty case and i can understnad your anger and wanting to name this person to warn others about her but do not say too much about her at this point of time. CJ

In meantime woould suggest gather as much information as you can find and save it ready for this officer.
Ok sorry and thank you for letting me know.

Removed the address, this is a shocking case but have to draw the line at publishing that as it may go against the owner in any future court procedings.
Thanks for all your help. The lady who stole the dogs and trying to sell on came yesterday with one of her friend and assaulted me. They tried to get more money out of me for my dogs and even wanted to know some more. it came to the point that they almost stabbed me with the scissors. Lucky some of my friends were there and helped me to get away from them. I called the police and explained the situation but sadly the police couldn't do anything cos it's a case of "they and she" said. But i have got more injuries than them cos they were beating me up. Not me to them.

I have even updated on my Facebook with pictures of my injuries.


She will make you think she is a nice lady and sell you a lovely sweet healthy Puppy. Once you made the payment and few weeks later you will find out that the puppy is actually sick and you need to pay lots of Vet bills. She even will give you wrong paper of the 1st injection vaccination book.
Once i found out i asked her to tell me where she got the puppy from and why the paper is wrong. She of course denied everything. And i asked the bank to stop the payment because it's gone through the bank.

It's all began on the day when i had to drop my husband off at the airport, that i decided to get a dog because my husband is more than often out of the UK and i didn't want to feel lonely. So i went onto gumtree and i found her the little black toy poodle calling for me. She said that the toy poodle was not accepted by her other dogs (she got 3 Chihuahua). I immediately contacted her and we made up a time and she gave me her address. It's on 29th August 2012 at 8pm:

So i went to her and i saw the little black toy poodle who fell in love with me and i with her. I gave her £200 cash straight away and she told me about the pet stroller she got and that her dogs doesn't like it. So, i was happy to buy her that off too. She even went with me to her local bank so that i can get another £250 cash for her. I was happy and went home with the dog which i called Bowie instead Bow-Bow. She made my life happy again and she even loves my cats i had at home. She played madly with them. Once i forget was the vaccination book that i left at her kitchen counter, and i agreed to see her vet on the following Monday. But sadly something came up (Break-in at my home), so i wasn't able to go to the vet, so i wanted to go to my local vet and asked her to send me the vaccination book but she started to be little bit rude and told me off to call the vet myself. So i let them be and i thought, well then i will get a new vaccination injections for her etc. I even forgot about this conversation. Few days later she texted me and said that there are few other toy poodle out there and if i might know someone who might be interesting in this. I immediately was thinking of my neighbour and one of my friend because they wanted a dog too. So, i asked if she has got 2 available because i wanted one for Bowie as well so that she won't feel lonely and she has some companion and the other one was for my friend or neighbour, depends. We met again on 22nd September, the day my husband came back from abroad and accepted my dog Bowie. :-)

I didn't have the car this time so i asked her if she is happy to visit me with the dogs. She even notified that she got a 3rd dog Westie. As i loves dogs i find its cruel to let the Westie down and i welcomed the Westie too.
My friend and i were waiting for her unti

Have put Bowie & Dave up on Facebook Doglost West London.
Yesterday i found them on gumtree and i contacted the gumtree and reported the person. They are now no more on the gumtree. I hope they have taken the advert down in time and they are still with the person who create the adverts. Sigh... It's hard work to chase and locate them but at least i know where i can look for them on a regular basis.
We already got their number and the full address of the offender but now i have to get the solicitor involved which cost me lot of money bt they are worth is.
The police are able to track the person who rang from their telephone location/number.
