Dog Thieves in Charlotte?
Dog Thieves in Charlotte? I just can not believe that I am even writing about this. When I first read about it on Facebook, a post warned dog owners of a group of people stealing dogs out of yards. I just could not believe that some people could actually do something like this. It said that thieves will sometimes tie plastic bags to trees in order to mark houses that have dogs. I thought maybe it was a bit far fetched however, I am now reading about it all over Facebook and it was even on the WBTV news. There are two reasons people steal dogs: breeding and bait, as in dog fighting training bait. This is just horrifying. Also, keep in mind that it is NOT JUST SMALL DOGS. It is ALL dogs sizes and breeds. Please stay with your dog while it is outside. This is such a sad thing to have to write about but I just want to make sure everyone is informed. Call the police if you see any suspicious cars or people in your neighborhood. This has got to stop and it will not unless we are all on the lookout always. Please share this with everyone you know and ask them to share it also.
