Useless guard dog stolen from his own homeThere's a sure fire way to tell that your dog isn't exactly the world's best guard dog… like when it gets stolen itself.
And that's just what happened to Rocky the Rottweiler, a guard dog who was recently snatched from his home in Gloucestershire.
Thieves are understood to have lifted the fencing into the area where Rocky was kept and stolen him, nothing else was taken.
As such the home owners, who'd hoped the dog would be an active deterrent to would-be burglars, were forced to make an embarrassing call to police to report that he'd been stolen.
A spokesperson for Gloucestershire Police told Newslite: "It's believed that thieves lifted the fencing in the area where Rocky, a male Rottweiller, was kept and stole him.
"Investigating officers are following up a number of inquiries and are eager to hear from anyone who saw any individuals, or any vehicles, acting suspiciously in the area last week."
