Protect Your Pooch! Dog Thefts Are Up 32 Percent
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — If you’re one of millions of dog owners in the Los Angeles area, be sure to keep an eye on your beloved four-legged friend. Dog thefts are up 32 percent this year, according to the American Kennel Club. Stolen dogs are almost always resold, and are often used in laboratories or dog fights. Pit bulls and other large breeds are stolen the most frequently. Purebreds are also at risk because thieves think they can get a lot of money for them. However, without paperwork, purebreds are usually no more valuable than mixed breeds. The AKC database of registered dogs show 224 pets have been stolen this year, compared to 255 for all of 2010.

Watchwoman: Who could not love such a face as the one you see above? Alexia is loyal to us, her family. We love her and treat her like she’s a grandkiddie! The silver medal you see hanging on her neck says, “My name is Alexia. Apparently I can’t find my way home. Take me there, please. Call my house. I want to go home.” God put us in charge of all things, including all the animals (that means our poochies too) and God reminds us that we are to be good stewards of every thing in the world, every one of His Creations, including our pets! [Genesis 1:26] And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. [1 Corinthians 4:1-2] Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.  Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. ▬ Donna Calvin
