    Hi everybody, this is a very sad tale and also a warning to all dog owners out there. On January 6th at 1.45am our house was broken into and a litter of 3 British Bulldog puppies were stolen from their whelping box where they slept on a heat pad and under a heat lamp. The adult dogs woke me up with their barking but I was just too late! The mother of the pups must have taken a beating and was left traumatised. She refused to come out from behind my bed for the next few days. They took the pups but left my laptop, a new camera and my wallet, so it was a very specific target. There is obviously nothing these 'dog thieves' will stop at so please DO NOT LEAVE ANY DOGS UNATTENDED. The police came out and we have since that time been trying to find the pups.Although the pups were coming up for 8 weeks, they looked to be only 5 weeks old as they had been the trailers of the litter, hence why they were still under a heat lamp. The low lifes who did this must at some stage try to sell these puppies on to get their money, or the pups must surface somewhere.
    What I am asking is for people to please keep their eyes and ears open for any bulldog puppies being sold on the cheap, or if they know of anyone recently aquiring a bulldog pup. They were born on 9th November so they will be 3 months old now.
    I would appreciate any help or information. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE SAFE RETURN OF THESE PUPS.
    Thank you.

    That is absolutely terrible. Obviously when they try and sell these puppies there will be no mum to be seen so they will have difficulty selling them. Its a shame that people can be so cruel hope they get their comeupance what goes around comes around as they say :mad:

    Hi everyone, thank you all for your lovely comments. The mum of the pups is fine now although all three of the Bulldogs are now hyper-sensitive to any noise or disturbances. I cant blame them though. I will try and upload a picture of the pups which was taken 2 days before they were stolen, remember thought that they will be 4 weeks older now, and they do grow so quickly. It will give you an idea of their markings which will help.
    The pups were taken from Hemyock in Devon, very close to the Somerset border. I urge people once again to be careful of their own pets, these thieves will jump on any opportunity to steal dogs and puppies.
