New dawn for Skye

Skye 47435_aA third dog has been returned to kennels in Linchmere, Sussex after seven of their dogs were stolen in a five day period 18 months ago.

Skye, a black Cocker Spaniel was reunited with her owners after she escaped from her new home in the Midlands. The new owner, unaware that she had been stolen had bought her and a puppy after seeing the puppies advertised online.

The thefts, which were featured extensively by BBC South Today, were many of a spate at the beginning of 2013 which heralded our Gundog Theft Action campaign.

Biscuit and Tiggy, a Jack Russell Terrier and a Border Terrier, respectively, were reunited last year after they escaped their captors near Basingstoke.

There are still four more dogs missing Purdie and Tika both Springers; Dexter, an elderly Cocker and Bertie a Jack Russell.
