(Update 22/09/20 – Cookie, the dog stolen in West Parley, has been found! Two men are under arrest on suspicion of theft. Well done to everyone in West Parley and Ferndown for helping the police bring this to a happy conclusion.)
One of the more disturbing side-effects of the lock-down is the rise in the number of stolen dogs. This has been a developing national trend over the last few months and unfortunately West Parley and Ferndown are not exempt. Popular and family friendly breeds are the prime targets.
I think everyone can understand the heartbreak and trauma caused to a family (and especially young children) when such a callous act takes place.
The latest victim in our area is a Cockapoo called Cookie.
Cookie was stolen near the owners VW Camper van that was parked in Longfield Drive, West Parley on the 18th September. The van was parked at the corner of Longfield Drive and New Road at midday.
Cookie’s owners are keen to contact anyone who may have seen a Cockapoo or been driving past at that time. They have indicated that they are willing to provide a reward. Cookie is a much loved family member and the families children are distraught.
If you have any information about the whereabouts of Cookie please go to This Page or click on Cookie’s picture above . It provides contact details with the owners.
We all hope that Cookie is reunited with her rightful owners in the very near future.
