Dorset Police hunt two women in connection with theft of pet chihuahua
4:00pm Saturday 8th September 2012 in Latest
POLICE would like to speak to two middle-aged women who were seen in the area when a much-loved family pet went missing.
The pair, one blonde and the other with darker hair, were seen getting into a car when the dog went missing from outside a flat in Herbert Avenue, Rossmore, at 7pm on August 21.
Three-year-old chihuahua Tiffany, who is owned by the Gerber family, had been in a tent in the back garden with 11-year-old Chiara when the dog ran off.
Chiara’s brother Frederic, 23, said that his mother and sister had seen the two women, but did not think anything of it at the time.
Neighbours confirmed that the women had not been visiting them.
Tiffany was wearing a grey hoodie with pink piping when she disappeared but did not have her collar on. The family has been given a crime number and police are treating the incident as a theft.
Anyone with information should contact the police on 101 or the Poole animal welfare on 01202 261700.
