    Ok i just dont understand people anymore--
    I have been having a good day cleaning house , had my music playing - you know just a good day.
    I heard the dogs outside making alot of fussing so I went to window to see what the deal was when I saw a young man- guessing on age 16-20ish near the fence - well I was about to open window to ask him to leave dogs alone when he grabbed my brindle boxer by the back of her neck and pulled her right out of the yard I yelled for him to leave her alone - he took off running and of course my goober dog started to run also I am running out the front without shoes on to try and look for her I did not want to yellher name ( did not want this person to know that ) but I had no choice I yelled and heard and saw nothing - so I go back into house to get shoes and when I opened the door there she was waiting for me to let her in- she runs into house wagging her little nub tail acting all playful - what a goof ball !! I called police to make a report, but of course there is nothing they can about it anyway.
    When I moved here my biggest concern was about my chickens because of all the loose dogs/cats in neighborhood I never dreamed i would have to watch out for the dogs!!

    to make matters worse we just had this girl breed - thank god it is still very very early in a possible preg. I dont think there will be any trama to any pups.
    So this spring we are planning to rebuild the fence and we are going to putting up a wooden privacy fence and adding a hotwire along the bottom to keep dogs from digging just in case ! and reusing the wire fencing to build on to chicken yard to give them more room.

    just glad she is home - put still upset about the idea of almost losing her- i needed to vent alittle.

    here is a pic of my almost dognapped girl Abbey

    Sound like that twerp is trying to use her as a bait in pit bull fighting ring or wanted to have a pit bull dog himself. We get those kind of kids and young men doing that to boxers, rotts and pit bull and bull dog puppies. The younger the better they like them.

    Better put some kind of ID thing on her in case she gets dog-napped again.

    I'm glad everything worked out ok. Things like that are really scary. That's why I'm glad we live back in the woods, and don't have to worry about it. Hopefully you won't have anymore problems. [​IMG]

    Quote:Or better yet get her chipped, I think it's only $20 to get it done. That way it can't be removed like a collar and tag.

    That is one of my worst nightmares. I couldn't imagine losing an animal and not ever knowing what happened. Thank goodness you got her back!

    I hope you call the police and give a discription of the young man you saw. There might be others dogs that have been stolen in the area and you could help them find the culprets and maybe even get others dogs back. You might want to get a good lawn chair so you can sit with your dogs while they are out. My sister had a dog stolen and she found her way back after about 3 weeks. She nursed the wounds and once she was healthy again moved her back outside, the people came back and stole her a second time and she didnt come back then. Good luck and keep them safe. Jenn
