A £1,000 reward has been offered for the return of a beloved dog which was stolen from a teenager during a mugging three months ago.

Herts Police have twice appealed to the public for help in locating Max, a two-year-old brown and white Shih Tzu crossed with a Cavalier King Charles.

A 16-year-old boy had been walking Max along Hall Gardens at about 9pm on Wednesday, September 10, when his mobile was stolen during a mugging.

When the thief got caught in the dog’s lead he picked up Max and took him too.

He went to a car parked nearby, a white BMW 1 series, where two other men were waiting and they drove off.

The teenager’s mum said that as a result of publicity about missing Max, “a wonderful person has anonymously donated a £1,000 reward for his safe return or information leading to his safe return”.

This was coordinated through Stolen and Stray Pet Recovery.

Max’s owner said she would love to see him safely returned before Christmas. If you know where Max is, please phone Stolen and Stray Pet Recovery on 01490 460369 or 07870 665724.
