Two of the dogs were quickly tracked down by police. Two more were later recovered. One pup, Alice, is still missing. A sixth dog ran away from the thieves and later returned on its own

PLEASE KEEP PUBLICISING THE STOLEN TIBETAN SPANIELS AND LET EVERYONE KNOW THE POLICE ARE TAKING THIS VERY SERIOUSLY. The 9 year old bitch must have been so frightened that she bolted and thankfully turned up on the door step. Sadly the thieves still have the young Champion male, a 2 year old bitch, a 3 year old bitch and two 8 month old puppy bitches. Heather and Liz have been overwhelmed by the reaction of the dog people but we still need to keep publicising as much as possible. Contact numbers again are: 01235-850289 or 07768 491762 - email firstname.lastname@example.org – DAY OR NIGHT!
This message, which is currently circulating via social media sites and email, asks users to be on the lookout for five stolen Tibetan Spaniels. The message includes contact details for the owners of the stolen dogs and requests that users keep publicising the information by passing on the alert to others.
The information in the alert is factual, although now a little outdated. The five Tibetan Spaniels
were stolen from kennels at the village of Upton in Oxfordshire, UK on Tuesday, 27th December 2011 by four men driving a silver Mitsubishi.
Two of the stolen dogs were recovered by police in the Hampshire town of Hadley. It was originally believed that a sixth dog was also stolen. However, the sixth Spaniel apparently thwarted the thieves by running away. She later returned to her owners.
On the 6th of January 2012, Gladys and Amy were also recovered, leaving just one pup, Alice left to find.
