$100,000 REWARD FOR STOLEN PUPPY - Owner offers big bucks for pet's return
The nights have been long and the days have been cold for one Corporate Area woman, since the theft of her seven-year-old Shih Tzu Poodle, which was reportedly stolen from her Calabar Mews apartment complex in St Andrew last Sunday.
So desperate is the woman, Nadine Hamilton, for the safe return of the dog, which she describes as her only company at home, that she is offering $100,000 cash to anyone who brings back the pet safely.
"Mi want mi dog, mi nuh eat two days now, mi ah tell yuh de God almighty truth," the woman said yesterday when she was contacted by the star "Mi want back mi dog."
Hamilton explained that the dog, named Ashley, was definitely stolen from the premises as the animal is extremely trained and would not leave otherwise.
"Someone deliberately took her from the complex, she has lived here for four years and she has never left," the distressed owner explained. "A neighbour across the street said that he saw a light skinned guy walk through the gate (at the complex) and saw when he was leading the dog outside."
Hamilton further said that the neighbour, who was washing a car at the time, called out to the individual, telling him not to let the dog venture outside. The neighbour did not really pay much attention to them after that and the dog and the light skinned fellow have not been seen since. At present, this bit of information is the only clue that Hamilton has about the possible whereabouts of the 'new owner' of her beloved angel.
This information, she has already given to the Constant Spring police. When contacted the police they confirmed that they have recorded a report about the stolen pet after Hamilton visited the station on Sunday. However, there have been no new developments in the case of the missing animal.
"I know right now she (Ashley) is distressed because she hardly goes outside, she is like a very 'stush' white girl, she is always in the house, she sleeps in a bed, she runs on a treadmill, she likes chicken and steak," Hamilton said. "I don't know if these people are going to cater to her lifestyle."
The owner went even further to express fears of the culprits mating her white angel with mongrels or even tying her outside like a stray dog.
Hamilton said that she is imploring anyone with information to call her 886-0169 or 562-3169. She said even if someone may have purchased the dog not knowing that it was stolen, they should still contact her.
And, in case you are in possession of Ashley and you are too ashamed to face the owner or the police, Hamilton is asking that you merely "open the side gate (at the apartment complex) and put her (Ashley) in the yard, she knows her apartment she's part of a family."
In the meantime, Hamilton said that she will be fasting and praying for her dog over the next nine days.
