Stolen/Lost dogs

Posted on August 15, 2020 at 9:30 AM

The number of stolen dogs is on the increase across the UK, it is thought this is due to the increase in the demand for puppies.

How to prevent it:

1) never leave your dog unattended in your garden, no matter how safe you think it is.

2) set your house alarm, if you have one, even if you're just popping out.

2) vary your walk and, if you can, vary the times of day you walk.

3) if a stranger shows interest in your dog, don't give them any details that could spark further interest, particularly it's age and breed. (We are trying to avoid an assessment of breeding potential and designer dog appeal here). I make up stuff if anyone ever asks me= they are always really old, an unknown rescue crossbreed and belong to someone else!

4) Never let your dog out of sight on a walk - ever!

5) avoid the "A Labrador lives here" type signs on your gates/fences and your car.


What to do if your dog gets stolen/lost:

Preparation is the key here, you're going to be frantic so lets get all the information you need one place now. In advance, write down on a piece of paper and store it in a memorable, safe place in your home, and on your phone the following details:

1) microchip number (make up a contact number in your phone and message yourself the number).

2) the telephone number of the microchip company's database e.g

Pet Log: 01296 336579

PeTtrac:01273 408722

3) local dog warden number (Bradford is 01274 433927)

4) dog lost: 0844 800 3220

5) your vets and other local vet's telephone numbers.

6) your local police station's number (Manor Lane, Shipley is 0845 606 0606) get a crime reference number if you suspect your dog is stolen.

6) keep an update date photo of your dog on your phone.


(please note I'm dyslexic and so no matter how many times I check these number they still might not typed up properly, please verify them yourself)


So you'd phone the above, giving your dogs details and sending a picture where possible.


There's other things you can do too that might help locate your dog more quickly:

1) keep up to date photographs of your dog from a couple of different angles. (We are talking full frontals for easy identification, not cutesy curled up shots).

2) check daily that your dogs "scan me" and dog identification tags are still attached to their collar, especially before you go on a walk.

3) things get worn and lost, so when you buy a collar/tag etc, if you, can buy spares.

4) talk to your postman and visit the local sorting office and ask to put up a flyer (so every postman will see it).

5) put up local posters (cover them in in A4 punchpockets to keep them water tight) in high footfall areas, supermarkets, dog walking parks, near schools.

6) go on social media. (but don't put a found dog on social media, call the warden, police if you find one).


The final thing to note is to shut down the industry. Don't buy from puppy farms (not even to save a puppy, if you suspect a puppy farmer, call the police and RSPCA. The mother should also seen with the puppy etc. To find out how to buy a puppy safely look here for Lucy's Law:
