Which dogs are most at risk from theft?
Before addressing some useful general guidelines for dog protection, it’s worth noting that some breeds are more at risk than others.
The breeds most commonly targeted by thieves are usually those with the highest value at the time. For example, recently Lady Gaga’s French Bulldogs were the target of dognappers, with a similar story for many bulldogs across the country. With a price range of anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000, the majority of recent thefts often involve these smaller purebred dogs that are easy to carry.
If you have any kind of expensive, rare, or pure breed dog, then it might well be worth taking extra precautions to keep them super safe.
