Blind dog ‘stolen by pair of sick thieves who made getaway on speedboat’

Two sick thieves were seen stealing a blind dog from a Scottish Island before making their getaway on a speedboat.

Frances Curley was holidaying at a campsite on Inchtavannach Island in Loch Lomond last Sunday (June 19) when her two-and-a-half-year-old border terrier Skye vanished.

According to a Facebook appeal, Frances was making dinner at roughly 4.15pm while her partially sighted pooch was relaxing in a hammock.

When she returned to the hammock Skye was gone.

A search of Inchtavannach Island turned up nothing, and later two paddleboarders told Frances they had seen two men nab the dog before jumping in a speedboat, reports the Express.

Frances said: “100% no doubt she was taken.

"The island was searched twice.

"She is scared of her own shadow.

"When I was training her, I played hide and seek to test her, when she realised I was not in range of her, she would sniff her way back to where I was hiding – always."

Frances is appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

She is also asking the two men to get in touch so they can be ruled out of the search.

Skye has been microchipped with the details registered to her owner.

She was wearing a pink and white striped collar with two tags, one which reads "fur ever yours", when she went missing.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "We can confirm that enquiries are ongoing into the theft of a border terrier dog from the Loch Lomond area.

"The theft took place on Inchmoan Island between 16.15 and 16.25pm on Sunday, 19 June.
