A dog with a life-threatening blood disorder has been stolen from an RSPCA centre in Coventry by a man posing as a potential adopter.Perhaps next time, you should ask for a deposit?
The man took Chippy, a mastiff-cross, from the site on Coundon Wedge Drive at 11:30 BST on Monday, the charity said.
He was able to take the dog for a walk after leaving house keys and a bike, but these proved to be false as he did not return for them.
The normal re-homing procedures, including asking relevant questions, were followed when the man came to the centre, the charity said.The BBC doesn’t seem interested in answering the unspoken question of just why anyone would steal a dog like this.
The man, in his early 20s, has been described as having brown hair, blue eyes and a pock-marked face, about 5ft 7ins tall with having tattoos on his hands and neck.
The RSPCA added that he was wearing a grey tracksuit with a dark blue/grey cap.
For that, we have to turn to the Coventry Telegraph:
Kennel supervisor, Jennie Hamlet, added: “All we want is to have Chippy back in our care so we can find him a loving home where we know he will be ok.Sounds to me like he wasn’t exactly in the right hands before he was stolen…
"We are really worried due the type of dog he is that he may well fall into the wrong hands which would be devastating for all of us...”
