  • Saw where a couple are stealing ppl pets and taking strays off streets. Sell to dog fighters, some for bait dogs. Reason? Money for drugs.
    Please be extra careful for the safety of your pets..
    Heartless ppl like that need to be jailed. Makes me sick.

  • Sad thing is, in these types of situations, people who are stealing the dogs are doing it for one of three reasons. 1) If it's a particular or nice breed, they are looking to steal it and sell it. 2) If it's a specific breed, they are looking to use it to train in order to force it to fight. or 3) They might even (horrible as it is) be using some dogs as bait, to help train other dogs to fight by hurting and tearing into them. All three are disgusting, but the last two are the absolute worst.

  • "I will never take my eye off my dog again." That's what is supposed to be happening at dog parks — supervision of your dog. You cannot do that if you are reading, gabbing, losing sight of your dog. Hope more of these thefts happen to encourage responsible supervision at dog parks. As for me, I'm done with em.

  • One needs to stay close to their dog and monitor at all times. I only go to dog parks with a separate small dog area. However, one still needs to watch. Last summer, a woman was letting her chihuahua run while she chatted with a friend in the small dog area. A man with a pit bull decided to cut through the small dog area (it has gates at both ends. His pitbull grabbed the chihuahua and killed it before anyone could intervene. If she had been close and watching who was coming in and out, she would have picked up her tiny dog once she saw the man bring the big dog into the park.

    I also monitor that the dogs are not going into stalking mode and that my dog is not getting over tired. I use Sue Sternberg's Dog Park Assistant app. I find it very useful.

  • He was obviously going to breed it. Poodles sell for a lot of money. This is why you should never buy dogs off of Craigslist or anywhere else except a shelter or from someone you know or trust. You just end up funding theft, puppy farms and general animal abuse.

  • You're supposed to be watching your dog at all times at dog parks… not just letting them run around while you read or look at your phone. I would never just leave my dog to his own devices at a dog park.

  • Oooh I woulda Beat his Ass… thank God I have a full grown German Shepherd, he'd bite his ASS! literally! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Why would you not be watching your dog?! I am always watching both of my dogs at the dog park. No room for distraction

  • steal my dog. i'll steal you virginity. any hole i want. believe me… after im done, it will feel like i stole it!

  • People need to pay attention at all times in a dog park. Stop sticking their noses in their cell phones and books. Watch your dog.

  • Same thing happened to my my Dalmatian puppy. I went to fill all the bowls with my dog on the leash and someone ran by and grabbed him off the ground and pulled me with him. Someone tackled him and my dog broke leg. That guy went to jail and had to pay his medical bills.

  • WTF A TICKET AND RELEASED WTF AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGHHHHHH IM SO HEATED RN AND ITS NOT EVEN IN MY COUNTRY BUT WTF😑😑😑

  • What a bunch idiots people steal dogs are. Can get a dog cheap or even no cost from many sources. Dont need to steal a frikken dog.

  • Anyone trying to steal any of my dogs would be flat out fucking beat the shit out of. I am a women but I grew up with cousins who taught me well. I would go ape shit on that douche bag. he was probably trying to steal it and sell her off of craigslist to make an easy 500 to 1,000 dollars. i can't believe the laws are not stricter on this.
