Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

A family we know from our dog school had their house broken into yesterday and besides other valuables, their adorable little Jack Russel puppy was stolen. They live in Attenschwiller, France, but it's only a few km from Basel, so if the bastards took the dog to re-sell her, they could try to do so in Switzerland as well. So if you see an ad offering such dog or similar, please let me know.

Fidji is a female, just 4 months old and microchipped.

Re: Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

That's horrible! Despite being crooks, I hope they are treating the pup with care...
Will keep an eye out - lots of luck to the owners!

Re: Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

Could it be that the puppy ran off when the house was broken into, perhaps through an open door or window?

Either way, terrible situation, I feel for the family and hope the puppy comes back soon!

Hopefully - better than the alternative. It's a very small pup though, so he could not have gone far herself, someone in the village would have probably found her already.
Will of course keep you updated.

I see that PaddyG doesn't have the ad anymore...? I wanted to post the link here and say: ''What a coincidence...''.

Re: Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

Be certain he hasn't gone anywhere to hide. If he's a sensitive soul he might be in shock under a bush somewhere and too afraid to come out. I know my cat would be - he freaks out at the hoover and manages to jump 5 feet in the air to get on a clothes shelf.

Best of luck finding him, although I doubt he was stolen, just perhaps ran away.

It was moved, can't imagine why
In all seriousness, I hope your friends find their pup. We had a Jack Russell when I was a kid, bloody thing hated me.

He probably sensed your inner turmoil and dodgy sense of humour.

Re: Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

Oh dear, this is heartbreaking.

Although he is probably chipped in France, informing ANIS that the dog has been stolen might also be a good idea. That way any attempt to change the existing microchip details might trigger an alert to the police here.

All fingers and paws here crossed that Fidji makes it home safe and sound.

.

Thanks, will forward the suggestion to the owners. We will go walk with our dogs in the area as well, Fidji likes them a lot, so in case she's hiding, might come out.

Re: Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

Being a bit ignorant here (OK, steady on), but is the chip merely for ID purposes? It isn't some kind of tracking device? (OK, that sounds really stupid, actually, but I'll let it stand)

They're just RFID chips and have no tracking capability (though if you search the interweb you might hear otherwise).

Re: Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

Update - Fidji is back home! She was sold to a woman in Besancon, France (2-3 hours from here) who took her to a vet for a routine check after a few months. the vet scanned the chip and called the rightful owners. Isn't this a happy ending? And thank God for microchips.

Re: Jack Russel puppy stolen near Basel!

That is fantastic news. I wish I could have seen the pooch when it got back to you.

This is a good reason for all animals to be chipped. Well done to you
