An unfortunate incident regarding the dognapping of a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu in Brighton has come to a happy ending, as the dogs were returned to their owners. Emma, a mother of four, has said now how she will be extra careful to not let the dogs out of her sight.
The Shih Tzu, named Rollo, and Lula the Bichon Frise, were both taken from their own home on Monday, January 9th. With the dogs normally roaming around their garden, it didn’t occur to their owner Emma that there was a possibility they could be taken. Following the realisation that the two dogs had disappeared, Emma started her search for them.
After a stressful 48 hours, Emma and her family almost gave up hope of finding little Rollo and Lula. Despite this, faith returned when news came that Rollo had been taken by a male figure who had been noticed walking with the dog on the date of his disappearance. The man handed Rollo in to a nearby vet, where the dog’s owner was able to pick him up. His condition was stable and no harm had been done, apart from a small cut on the dog’s tail.
Lula the Bichon Frise however was passed over the garden fence, which was peculiar to understand. Although their ordeal must not have been pleasant, the dogs are now both happy and comfortable in their family home. A woman from the area has recently been arrested by police on suspicion of canine theft.
