Letter: I want my puppy back

I recently had my dog taken off my property and I really miss the little guy. I have posters posted everywhere, the vet notified, the shelter notified, a lost ad in the paper, and also posted at the feed stores and pet stores. I have offered a reward. He has been missing since July 1.

He is not just a pet; he is part of our family. When I travel he goes with me.

I really can't understand the human mind and wonder every day if he is OK. I hope to get him back. Please put a really big yell out to everyone. Please, I just want my puppy back. He's a five-month old red/white male Corgi. No questions asked. Thank you.

Mahala Henry

“And someone who does not know how to end a sentence with anything other than a exclamation point is NOT strange?”

Actually that is not all that strange. But what is strange is a supposed grown man ending each comment like a giggling twelve year old girl with “LOL.” NOW THAT is strange!

The great dog kidnapping story sure has brought out a wide range of commentary from the one about throwing folks down mine shafts committing murder, to some strange fellow dining on dogs to homeless pan handlers! I guess Mohave county has some strange things occurring in it to go with some of the strange thinking people who live in it!

If a person took the dog and not a coyote the dog community should get together to map out where dogs have been taken and treat it as a search area. I love dogs and they protect us so lets protect them !
Maybe the sheriffs office has a report log that would assist in the mapping of the areas of concern?

Does anyone have a description of that guy? I have seen someone with a different dog almost every time I see him. Once he had a puppy that looked ill (it had diarrhea ) and he was actually dragging it through a hot parking lot panhandling.... I think he figured he would get extra sympathy due to having a puppy. What a jerk!

Seems to be a lot of this going around. From what I have heard from most dog owners is they left their little friend in the front yard with maybe a 3 or 4ft fence. Doesn’t take much for an adult to pull up and reach over to grab Fido and take off. Its bad enough we have to worry about our children, but now our furry companions. We have a small dog that would leave with anyone, but we only let him outside when we are home and he goes out with his very large unfriendly canine buddy who would gladly chew your arm off if anyone tried anything like that. I’m so very sorry about your puppy and I pray you get him back. Oh and “desert dweller” I totally agree with you..

@ Desert Dweller & Kingman Resident: You guys are alright.

Mrs or Miss Henry. Maybe Mal-Mart and K-Mart will let you put up signs as well.

Their is a guy who steals and eats dogs here. Ive ran into this guy several times, I gave his dog water one day. My husband said "You know he eats those dogs right" I thought he was pulling my leg, but every time I see him, about once every week or two, sure enough different dogs! Every time! We had two dogs stolen out of our yard. One was a pup and the other was a jack mix. No way they cold have gotten out. Im sorry Mahala I know how good you are to your animals and how much you love them.

Yes there is and my moms dog was stolen by a friend who took it to go potty, I posted an ad and five days later she got a call from a lady who found my moms two legged chihuahua wandering and dehydrated in the wash. The guy told my mom the puppy died! What is wrong with people?

I live about a block and a half from the Gas 'N' Grub on the corner of Northern and Stockton Hill. Just before Christmas our Chihuahua was stolen out of our yard. I let him out to play with my kids and not even 5 minutes later I saw some young guy with my dog in his hands getting into the passenger side of a car and taking off. I got a partial plate but, to be honest the sheriff's office really wasn't much help and we never saw our puppy again. We now keep all of our gates locked at all times.

W Hwy 66 off Shinarump was where my little man was taken. I spend alot of my time checking the paper and craigs list to see if he appears. He is super friendly and a love bug. He may have lost his collar but They may have ignored the colar and taken him any how. The road is a rarely traveled road.

To "desert dweller" I say AMEN! my brother. And I know where a good many of those old mines are.

Good luck getting it. I had my 8 week old chihuahua/cairne terrier mix stolen off my property on Mother's Day. I ran an ad in the KDM that said 'STOLEN!' they changed it to 'MISSING!' Yes, he's missing, but he was STOLEN. If that word had been in the ad, I feel that people would've paid more attention. When something goes missing, people assume that it just wandered away, not that it was stolen.

from what area?

Just a warning to folks in Kingman. Especially the North Kingman area. there are 2 legged snakes that look for opportunities to take small to medium dogs. I won't say what their intentions are but they aren't noble. Keep your small pets locked in the yard and always know where they are. My daughter had her little dog taken and she was heartbroken for months. She let him out of her sight for just a bit and that was all it took for those scum to take him.

I have no patience and no sympathy for scum that hurt animals or steal them....there are plenty of old mine shafts to dump these people in, in my opinion!
