Missing pet worth a new mortgage

A woman whose dog was taken after a walk in the park says she has 'no idea' why

A dog owner has remortgaged her home so she can offer a £10,000 reward for the safe return of her missing pet.

Dawn Maw, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, said her four-year-old prize-winning German shorthaired pointer Angel was stolen last month.

The 42-year-old said Angel was bundled into a white Transit-type van after she had been walking her dogs in a park.

Speaking on ITV's Daybreak, Mrs Maw said she had "no idea" why anyone would take Angel, who is spayed and cannot be used for breeding.

"She's a big member of the family," she said.

"We spent a lot of time together. My whole social life revolved around doing things with Angel, whether it was showing, she was a working dog...

"We just need her back. The house is empty.

"The thought of someone watching you and taking a member of your family is quite scary."

Mrs Maw, who is married with one child and works for the Department for Work and Pensions, said she has spent a further £3,000 on advertising for her pet's safe return.
