please read this and pass the info on.
We have received very worrying news today that there appears to be a dog stealing gang working in the South of England and 5 Ridgebacks have recently been stolen from Sussex.
3 bitches were stolen from a farm in Bolney at around 4.30 in the afternoon, a male Ridgeback is missing from Lewes, and the Dog Warden in Sussex says that another was stolen from Burgess Hill.
Can you all please circulate this information and, those in the Sussex area, can you please advise all the locals vets, rescue centres etc. in the hope that these dogs can be found and returned to their rightful homes as soon as possible.
If you have any information regarding these missing dogs then please contact us.
Many thanks and keep all your dogs safe

Thanks Juju. I've passed that on to some dog-related fortums I'm on.

How much is a Ridgeback worth?

Priceless to the owner, very little to anyone else. Even if they use them for breeding, they won't get much for the puppies as they won't be able to register them with the Kennel Club. Unregistered pups sell for a fraction of the price of registered ones.

I am sure they have been stolen for breeding but not for the sale to kind caring people, they may end up being cross bred and used for fighting. Annette, i would be intrested in the forums you use and your conection with the dog world.

Have just heard that these dogs have most likely been stolen to cross breed with grey hounds, I am told that these are then used for hunting deer.
