News Report on Stolen Chicago French Bulldog Puppy

Delilah Blue
CBS News in Chicago has done a story on Delilah Blue, the French Bulldog puppy stolen from right inside her owner’s home.

More details here.


in Chicago, a French bulldog named Delilah has been gone since Sunday. That’s when her owner says she met the guy who took her. They’d been walking in a park near their home in the Pilsen area.

The dog’s owner, Beth Gottlieb, says she let the man into her house to use the restroom. She believes that while he was there, he unlatched a door that he would later use to get inside and steal the dog.

“The same exact person stole a dog from a pet store, and it’s an assault,” Gottlieb said. “I think it’s a crime ring.”

She says police dusted her door for fingerprints, and they’re working on a second case with a suspect fitting the same description. Gottlieb said the man who stole her dog had shaved eyebrows, multiple ear-piercings, tattoos on the sides of his neck and a tattoo on his arm that says “Alexi” or “Alexa.”

Animal experts say they’ve found thieves selling dogs like Delilah on the Internet for hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.

Lost Frenchie in PA Finds Its Way Home

A happy update on the lost Frenchie in Washington, PA:

I wanta say THANK YOU to everyone that helped in the recovery of Star who was lost in the woods in Washingtons Pa. for four long days. Thank you to everyone that sent emails with support . Special Thank you to Frank Gavlak and his wonderful wife and to Mary Smith for all their support and help, for the many hours spend walking in the back woods, for the help in getting a live trap set up and for Franks and his wife’s special care given to Star until I could make another trip to Pa. to bring her home. Also a big thank you to Kathy at animal control and to the wonderful guys at Tower Golf. Without each and every one of you Star might not have made it back home safe and sound.
Star made it back home late weds. night. It took two days before she would go outside alone and last night was the first time she brought me a toy and wanted to play since she’s been home. I’m sure she’ll be just fine in a few more days and back to her ole self.
Again, a special THANK YOU to each and every one of you………

From the FBV site:

Poor LuLu! At just eight weeks old on September 1, she is struggling to adjust to her new foster home. Her new foster parents, two teenaged boys, and the resident dogs are all trying to make it easier on her, but she still wakes up in the dark and screams her little heart out. She doesn’t know where she is. She doesn’t recognize the voices around her or the hands holding her.

It’s always dark when LuLu wakes up. Before her eyes even opened, a severe infection took away all of the vision in her right eye, and most of the vision in her left eye. Faced with a blind puppy, her breeder decided to turn her over to the French Bulldog Village so that this little four pound baby could get all the special attention that she needed and have the best possible start on what we all hope will be a healthy long life.

How could you say ‘no’ to giving just $5 to help a dog like Lulu? (Shameless guilt tripping – I’m perfectly OK with it).
