Dogs to order ALERT!

Jody from Morrinsville

My partner was approached by two strangers at the Morrinsville Recreation grounds on Friday, 6th Dec, at midday after walking our two dogs. While he was coaxing our bulldog/boxer into his truck, one of the two guys approached him from behind and reached forward to grab our dog's harness, which resulted in my partner confronting the stranger who quickly retreated to his van. My partner promptly left in his truck with our two dogs in case both strangers decided to grow a set of balls and try again. He found a policeman in town and reported the incident, and coincidentally, the same van with the same occupants drove past them and parked a few hundred meters up the road. This policeman then approached the van to have a word with them about this incident. My partner did not recognize these two men but would recommend to everyone to be mindful they drive a white van, work as a pair, and seem to be scouting for 'dogs to order.'
