Dogs that are tied up outside while owners go to run even the shortest of errands are being stolen left and right in this city!!!
The likelihood of getting your beloved dog back are close to zero when your dog has been stolen from being left unattended and tied to a pole while you run into the corner store "for just one minute".
Heads up -- Dogs that are stolen this way are often sold off for quick money, sold off to laboratories for horrific testing practices, or used as bait in dog-fighting rings!!!! YES -- THIS IS HORRIBLE TO HEAR, BUT IT IS THE UGLY TRUTH!!!!
PLEASE - IT IS NOT WORTH IT!!!! DO NOT PUT YOUR BELOVED DOG IN RIDICULOUSLY UNNECESSARY DANGER!!!
JUST TAKE 5 EXTRA MINUTES, AND DROP YOUR DOG OFF AT HOME, AND THEN GO RUN YOUR ERRANDS WHILE YOUR BEST FRIEND IS SAFE AT HOME WAITING FOR YOU TO RETURN!!! PLEASE!!!
