DOG owners in Reading have been warned to ‘stay vigilant’ following reports that two men attempted to take a dog from a field in Tilehurst last week.
She said: “Kobee [her dog] started crying and Bella started barking so they didn’t get him.
“They still stood there as I approached.”
She described the two men, claiming that one was around 6ft, black, with large build and wearing a black tracksuit.
She said other man was white, of a slim build, and had been wearing a grey tracksuit with hood up.
They had a large grey staffy type dog, as well as three smaller dogs – one was a Jack Russell.
This follows a series of reported thefts and attempted thefts of dogs in Berkshire in the last few months.
Last month, a video captured the heartwarming moment stolen dog Wolfie was reunited with his owner after police involvement in the search.
