Show Dogs Stolen in Parked Van

Four show dogs were stolen along with the van they were in at a Motel 6. I really hope they find the dogs soon. 😞

How terrifying and heartbreaking for the breeder…

I really, really hope the van wasn't targeted for the dogs.

Here's a link to the kennel with bigger pictures:

The two missing Akita have been recovered, but two Corgis are still missing.

The also had this on one of the tabloid TV shows…I think Inside Edition. They said the dogs were worth over a $250,000. Not sure if that is a good thing to announce, I'm not sure why the handler would say that if they are trying to get the dogs back. I would be concerned that the thieves may decide to keep them to sell for ransom hearing that. Hopefully they just put them in a shelter somewhere.

Oh great. That was about the worst thing they could've announced!

I, too, hope that they'll just quietly hand them over. Though now I'm a little worried if they ditched the Akitas and deliberately held onto the Corgis.

Well it was tabloid TV, they have to sensationalize everything. :mad:

I just read on another list that all the dogs have been found and returned

Thank goodness - this must have been a terrible nightmare.

I am with you Patty Thank goodness. I wish people if that's what you want to call them would learn to keep their hand to thereself.

So glad they have been found and are now safe.
