    Don't think I'd be a free man for all that long if someone ever touched my pup. Am so sorry that all of these poor people are being put through so much pain and suffering, one's bond with their pup becomes quite similar to that of a parent and child. Law Enforcement should be able to resolve this rapidly, since there were that many pups stolen in such a short period of time in such a relatively small geographical area, that really should help in making it a fair bit easier to accomplish imo.

    Bridgeport. Wow, that is surprising.

    There are enough dogs out there. If they would spay and neuter their pets, there may not be such a problem.

    It's hard to muster a lot of sympathy for people who prop up the "purebreed" market. Their demand for fad breeds (like "teacup Yorkie") fuels puppy mills and thieving "breeders" who want to cash in. So long as there are suckers willing to pay $1500 for their "dream puppy," there are going to be monsters like this dognapper.

    With the problem of theft, not to mention all the suffering effects of inbreeding, maybe a purebred isn't the best pet to own.

    Purebred dogs are generally chipped. I should think breeding would require several vet visits. It will be just a matter of time before a vet finds one or more of these stolen dogs.
    It would also be interesting if there was a common denominator among the owners like where the dogs were purchased or whether they all share the same vet or groomer.

    The person doing this is immoral and heartless, they are also showing they don't grasp the bond a dog has to it's pack.

    One can't take one's eyes off a pet, ever. No different than caring for young children.
    I hope whoever is doing this is caught. ASAP!

    I had a Yorkie for 14 years, and they are wonderful little dogs. I hope they catch whoever is doing this. I don't want to think about what the dognapper would do with the dogs if they find out they've been fixed, probably just kill them :(

    It's not just illegal breeders that'll take dogs. Those with fighting dogs will grab anything they can, often smaller dogs, pull out all their teeth, then use them as "bait dots." It's disgusting what some people do.

    Omg! I don't know what I would do if someone took one of my furbabies!
