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.
