  1. Dog stealers deserve their own special place in Hell.

  2. Were these people possibly doing this to scam reward money because they know owners tend to give them out? Scum bags.

  3. Were these people caught and charged?

  4. They were caught and Stella is safe. The people had an elaborate story about how they rescued her which was BS. They should be prosecuted
