An appeal has been launched after a dog was taken by a well-meaning member of the public.
Stevenage police are appealing for help after a Staffordshire Bull terrier was left tied up outside Tesco in the Forum, Stevenage, on Thursday January 2, between 2pm and 3.20pm.
A lady told staff from Tesco that she was taking the dog home and would contact the police to let them know.
No contact has been made and the owner of the dog is very distressed about its disappearance.
Police Community Support Officer Ron Treadwell said: “We are very eager that this dog is returned to its rightful owner. We are sure that the lady was only thinking about the dog’s welfare when she took it, but we do need to now make sure that it is returned.”
