hope its ok to post here, if not sorry. i have seen up on a few sites adds looking for a 4 YR old tri colour female cavalier. she is spayed. She was lost more likely stolen from her back garden on monday. Family are very upset as she was a companion dog for the daughter who has special needs. think it was portlaoise area.

Thanks for that. :thmbsup: If you get a location and more info please let us know -- eg contact details; a link to a posting elsewhere is fine. :)

I truly wish people would not leave their dogs alone in back gardens -- this is a breed frequently stolen and in Ireland they are often stolen to order for homes in the UK (where people may think they are getting a rescue dog); used for dog fight bait, or stolen for breeding. If the dog is chipped and was taken for breeding there's a t least some chance she will be dumped and may be found and traced back to the owner.

NB to all: Please please always remember to chip your dogs, and I highly recommend having tags on the dog's collar that indicate clearly that your dog is chipped and neutered, which makes a male or female considerably less attractive and much more likely to be released or not taken in the first place as thieves are NOT generally looking for pets for themselves. Intact dogs are prime targets for indigents and thieves seeking to make money off puppies. :( But it is very hard to tell a female is spayed.

Karlin I saw this on facebook through Kidare Animal Foundation link. Sadly the poor little dog wasn't microchipped. Also I read it was in Portarlington but it says here Portlaoise so I'm not 100% sure of the area.

Ah how desparate these times are!! That poor dog, poor family! I noticed this ad on the lost and found.ie as well whilst posting my own ad yesterday (for a found dog). Anyway, I wish that it was the law that all dogs in Ireland were microchipped, it could save a dog's life. I also noticed another ad for a lost tri cavalier who was only 10 months old.
This is really worrying because a lot of dogs are being reported as lost/stolen in our area. Then you have the poor dogs who are being dumped and abandoned. What on earth is wrong with people!?!

Thanks miss daisy for posting those -- www.lostandfound.ie (http://www.lostandfound.ie) is a great resource and just was there and had noticed all those dogs. Unfortunately I am very sure many of these dogs have vanished because people keep them out in their back gardens all day when no one is home. And if they aren't neutered they are very attractive targets for people you really do not want to ever end up with a loved pet (or any dog...) as a breeding animal.

I just do not understand the idea of leaving a pet outside as a target for thieves (much less for the low quality of life) or not even putting a collar and tags on (a legal requirement of dog ownership!) or chipping the dog. Only one of these dogs had a collar and tag, two are not neutered, none is chipped. :bang:
