View Full Version : FOUND!!!! STOLEN: 8 cavaliers in Wexford, mostly adult females
1st October 2010, 11:43 AM
Will post more detail later as I only have a brief moment to post but eight dogs were taken, mostly blenheim bitches, but also a B&T puppy, in a white van from the home of a cavalier breeder in Wexford. Please if anyone sees anything suspicious -- a van or possibly full of many cavaliers -- anywhere in Ireland get the registration and ring Gardai. Ferries have been notified; there may be an attempt to sell these over in the UK. If you see a lot of cavaliers ANYWHERE let gardai know. If you are offered dogs for sale in odd circumstances, be very cautious and notify gardai.
The owner is devastated -- many of these were MRI scanned dogs with good grades. :(

You beat me to it Karlin - was just going to post this.
This is just tragic - one of very few responsible breeders in Ireland, one of the only ones MRI scanning for Syringomyelia :( in addition to being a huge personal loss for Rena.
We desperately need to find these Cavaliers...
I've written and suggested Rena contact Dogs Lost, also Dogs Today magazine and the microchipping company. We need to make these dogs too hot to handle - anyone in the Wexford area particularly that can help that would be very greatfully received. Although they could be anywhere by now :(

A lot of the Irish exhibitors of the Irish showscene follows Topdog,they'll get it out on the grapevine I'm sure.

Giving her advice on how to approach this -- a similarly stolen cav in NI was returned by using a certain approach and am hoping same will work here as they are probably not too far yet. All are chipped which will help find them if they try to sell them anywhere.

I hope they are found soon big hugs to the owner

This is apalling, I hope they turn up soon, and none the worse for their ordeal. The poor owner, she must be devastated.
1st October 2010, 01:50 PM
Oh goodness graciousness! How terribly devastating! My heart goes out to the breeder. Saying a prayer for them...

This is just too awful, why do people have to be so cruel. Will spread the word as much as I can down this end of the country and contact anyone else I think might be of use.
1st October 2010, 04:48 PM
Oh, that's awful, so heartbreaking :(:(. I have emailed as many family and friends I could to spread the word around. Really hope theses babies show up, safe and sound :xfngr:

I'm said for Rena and they poor dogs :(
Best hopes for a safe return!

I contacted Dogs Today and Beverly has very kindly put it up on her blog http://coldwetnose.blogspot.com/
and is also posting on Twitter.

If anyone has contacts with the UK travelling community and can explain that if anyone hears of these dogs, that there is a large reward and no questions asked for their return -- and note that all are microchipped -- that would be a helpful approach. They will either stay in Ireland or go to the UK. They may have been stolen to order for homes in the UK. :( But if there's a lot of awareness it may make them too hot to handle, especially as all are chipped.

If anyone has contacts with the UK travelling community
I've emailed Steve from customer services at Stansted airport. I can't promise this means things will be covered at this airport but it's all I can think of.

I do hope they're safely returned.

Thank goodness they have been found.

It's wonderful news.I imagine it's not something that Rena will get over in a hurry.Such a sickening ordeal for anyone to endure.She must be exhausted today!
There's so much delight across Facebook and the canine publication pages today,alot of people have lost their dogs to theft recently,a lady returned from Carlow show a fortnight ago to find her chihuahuas had been taken so it's a very big problem.
I think I'd go totally out of my mind if I had to endure that.
2nd October 2010, 03:13 PM
That's wonderful. I'm so happy they were found :rah:
2nd October 2010, 03:37 PM
Thats great...I was thinking of their poor owner last night while my boy was safe and sound tucked up in his bed:pi*no::pi*no:
