Goldens going missing

In the past two weeks I've read about three different cases of goldens being stolen or missing in my area, in my town and about 30 min from here and another an hour away. One couple claimed the puppy just vanished from the back yard but someones bike and foot prints were seen leaving the yard through the gate. So obviously someone took the pup.
The other dog disappeared from the back yard as well. Then two, a male and female are both missing from their home!
This makes me so nervous about letting Brew out in the yard to go to the bathroom, goes to show you can't take your eyes off them for a second! I feel so bad for the families missing their fur kids!

Seriously--it sounds like someone is targeting GRs and is probably selling them. Until this is over, I think you're wise to be very careful and not let your dog out of your sight in your back yard. Kind of a drag in winter! If there is a GR group in your area, it would be worth finding out if they're doing anything to raise awareness. That really is so sad that someone would steal pets...

Hope they catch the guy...

I'm so sorry this is happening! I'd probably go out every time my dogs needed to go out and keep them on leash. Hopefully someone recorded something on a home video security system or someone got a good description that can catch the thieves.

It's horrible! Brew never goes outside without me, probably because of my little pom mix, she is such a high theft breed I've had theft paranoia for the last 11 years!

When I was in graduate school I went by my parent's house to visit and parked in back. As I left there was a guy in front of me in the alley stopped at my neighbor's house, with a low wrought iron fence reaching in for their toy poodle. I was so angry I jumped out of my car, screamed at him to put that dog down, yelled at my neighbor(Bill) to call 911 (he had the patio door opened), told him I lived next door and had his license number and car description. He claimed he was a dog lover and just petting the dog but got out of there very quickly. It was probably a good thing as the neighbor (like a second dad to me) heard me, came out with his shotgun to protect me! He had a lot of contacts in the Texas Dept of Public Safety and got the license run- guy didn't live anywhere nearby and he figured the guy was stealing the dog to resell or keep himself. You can never be too careful and that was a few decades ago!

A friend of ours "lost" their dog that way but when they offered a reward a "kind" person "found" the dog and happily collected the reward. Sickening!

I'd get a Beware of Dog sign (faux of course), put that up. It deters all sorts of criminals!!

They don't know, you may have a vicious Rottweiler lurking in your backyard. Or, maybe your Golden will defend its territory should someone happen to sneak somewhere they shouldn't be!
