    Lizzie is the bitch at the back of the photo with the distinctive face marking. She is microchipped.

    Terrible and very upsetting -someone must of been watching!

    Facebook is brilliant for getting this circulating around the UK. People will share and share. Get someone to put the poster on for you this way it gets seen.

    If it's anything like our girls, it would have to be someone they knew well for them to even get close to a fresh litter of puppies... I'd be counting days and watching for puppies for sale. And buy a chip reader to have on hand when you see the mother.... Unbelieveable what folks will do.
    Heard of an organisation called TASSO? It's here in Germany, but I believe it's Europe wide. It's a free (but asks for donations now and then) org that lets you register chip numbers online in a database that every vet, animal shelter, etc has access to. Vets scan animals that show up in their office and verify ownership, animal shelters can find owners, etc...... Great service but it doesn't compensate for laziness (can't tell you how many calls we've had from vets asking if we're missing puppies/dogs because the buyer didn't get back with the info like we told them we needed update the info) at any level and doesn't cure dishonesty. If used right tho.......
    Be your self and speak your mind. Them that matter won't mind and the others don't matter

    May not be the best idea to stress that fact....... If someone would stoop to stealing a dog, I'm sure they'd cut on it to get rid of the chip. Hard to figure folks tho........

    This was posted on Protecting Preloved Border Collies on Facebook and is already circulating. Just wanted to get this seen in the farming community as the pups are from working stock and apparently this was a planned litter with all pups pre-booked. Somebody who knew about their birth mistakenly posted all details on a poultry site, so something else to be aware of with Facebook, it works both ways, there are the unscrupulous out there looking for every opportunity.

    I have found the fb page and shared the link. I'm in South Wales, plenty of gypsy farmers abound here so worth circulating.

    "Somebody who knew about their birth mistakenly posted all details on a poultry site" no way!!! talk about leaving yourself open to criminals particularly if they were all sold why on earth did they do that?

    It wasn't the owner, the owner has no internet. It was someone local that knew about them.

    Re: STOLEN IN KENT - Collie bitch & seven pups

    I'm quoting this from the doglost site:

    There are people out there who know where this dog and her litter of puppies are being hidden. If it's YOU, then please do the right thing and help to get this scared family pet back home. You can dial 101 and tell the police where she can be found. You can call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999, just tell them its the dog and puppies on doglost and they can do the rest. You can phone doglost on 0844 800 3220 and just give the information needed on the whereabouts of this scared young at risk dog and puppies. She needs specialist care to bring up her just born 7 puppies and its cruel she isn't at home with her human Mum to look after her.
    If it's YOU with the dog and puppies just put them back in your car and go straight to the nearest vet practice walk in the door leave the dog and pups and walk out. Just give the dogs up. They are going to need worming, injections, lots of care and attention ... just do the right thing. Please

    Lizzie has now been discovered in Edenbridge, Kent and returned to her owner, the seven pups are still missing. Lizzie showed signs of having been nursing when found so some of the puppies did survive.

    Thank you all. The puppies have not yet been found. The owner has said that if the puppies are in loving homes she would not take them back but she would like to know where they are and that their well.
