I Can't Imagine Who Could Possibly Be Responsible...

Bella, a black six-month-old Patterdale Terrier, disappeared in March after being let off the lead briefly during exercise on Mitcham Common.
She was playing when a man walking a larger dog grabbed her.
Miss Neilon, 37, a mother-of-three, said: “He picked her up and ran off with her.
“I shouted at him and tried to give chase but I couldn’t catch up with him.
“I was sick to the stomach, there was a wave of panic.”
Happily, she’s now been found, thanks to her microchip. But…who would steal a puppy?
Then last week - nearly six months after Bella vanished - Miss Neilon received a postcard from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home saying that Bella had been handed in.
Bella was found roaming Latimer Road and was brought in by a resident who said the dog had been living at a nearby travellers' site.
Ah. Of course.

She logged the theft as a crime with the police – anyone want to bet the response is…nothing? Just like it was when it was someone’s caravan, or work vehicle?

It rather makes you wonder if they’d even bother to shift themselves if it was someone’s child, doesn’t it?

Probably wasting my time explaining Julia as you have made your mind up the dog MAY have been on a gypsy site.........the police knock on every caravan many people live on the site?Don't know,do you?Will one of them spontaneously confess "it's a fair cop guv".
It's called evidence unfortunately,the courts are sticklers for it.

The Gypos knew what they were doing. Patterdale Terriers are a sought-after breed.They've all the spirit and intelligence of the Jack Russell without the kamikaze tendencies.
