I got her back so that’s good. I was inside the house, for TEN minutes making sandwhiches for my nieces before we ran outside to grab Wicklow and head out to Irish Stepdancing. My yard is fenced in and she had been inside all day.
Some guy came in my fenced in yard, put a rope around the dogs neck, took off her nametag and started up the street. The neighbor called and said another neighbor up the street had seen a guy walking with my dog went over and snatched the rope out of the guys hands told him it wasn’t his dog and it was mine. He put her back in my yard.
My question is… i’m terrified to let her outside now. I know they steal dogs for bait dogs. Does anyone know of an alarm that can be put on a chain link fence that sounds if it’s open? I’ve looked but I can’t find one. Thanks!

WTF, I would hurt somebody.
I dont know of an alarm for a fence but if I run across one I will let you know

OMG! That is terrible, I am SO glad that your pup is safe. I would just never leave her unattended, unfortunately.

That is CRAZY! I know that they make alarms for windows so a sound will go off if the window is opened. Try to search around for those and see if they could be adapted to attach to a fence.

They sell something that will make a buzzing noise, think buzzer at a basketball game, that you can attach to gates. It makes noise when the gate is opened. I have no idea what it’s called though, I just know I’ve seen it.
Thank goodness your neighbor was so thoughtful and didn’t let them get away with it! I would seriously hurt somebody if they touched my dogs.

That’s crazy! I’m glad you got her back though. I would try what a PP said. My parent’s have an alarm that goes on thier sliding glass door so that if it’s opened, it’ll make this loud beep. It may be able to be adapted to work on a fence. Ask at Lowes or Home Depot. They are usually pretty helpful with home problems.

First, I’d call an alarm company (local if you can) and ask them what they suggest. Follow the trail until you get what you need.
Also, I highly recommend that you call the police if you haven’t already. If they’re gathering evidence on a dog ring, etc any info they get can be useful. Also, depending on the type of dog you have it could be attempted grand theft.
I would pursue with great prejudice. See if they can find this guy, get him in their crosshairs, and make him pay because you know right well yours is not the first dog this has happened to.

what an awful person! Too bad you didn’t get the chance to kick his butt. But the alarm on the gate sounds like a good idea!

if it’s a reg 4-ft chainlink, I’d be worried that they would just jump the fence! We have a regular padlock on the fence gate here…

I’m not one for vilence but I would seriously hurt someone if they did this to me.
I also agree with MissHelen, I would pursue legal action against this guy. See if you can contact the wonderful neighbor who got your dog back and see if they can provide a description.
People are sick

Thanks I was looking at something that people use for their pool fences but i will ask the alarm company and Home Depot!
Yep i file a police report, but it’s pretty far down on their list of things they are concerned about, I didn’t have anyone bleeding in my front yard. So frustrating.

That is horrible. Thankfully you have good neighbors who didn’t ignore what was happening. What’s the deal with the guy who took your dog? Is he someone you know and planned to steal the dog? I can’t believe that someone would do this, how horrible!

OMG that is terrifying! I am so glad you got your dog back and that your neighbour recognized him and actually did something about it!! So scary…
