Do they have any idea where the dog may be headed? Hope whoever did this gets caught (and bitten for good measure).
Hugs and prayers for a speedy and safe return.

🙏Thank you GSCat, the police is investigating (CCTV, license plates etc).
Hope too that Django will be returned to his owners asap. He is missed very much.
Edited for you, changed the S in GSCat from a D. mrdarcy (mod)

@emoryg Thank you, Still no news yet. Wow, ten years in jail for dogtheft! Over here dogs are still considered 'property' just like a fridge, a microwave or other material stuff. Nothing like a family member with emotional value unfortunately.

Missouri, if charged under the animal-specific law, it's a Class D felony without regard to value, can get up to 7 years. If charged under general theft statutes, it depends on the value. If the animal is valued over $25,000, a Class B felony, 5-15 years.
Minnesota, if the dog (or other item) is valued over $35,000, or is a specific type of item, up to 20 years (other penalties, depending on the value and/or type of property)
If a theft that is a felony meets certain criteria, including causing foreseeable risk to the public, the sentence can be enhanced up to 50 percent
Looked for a nifty table online that would show the penalties for dognapping by state, but no luck :-(

Stolenpets is posting from the Netherlands, I think. Many US States may well have such legislation; unfortunately much of Europe is a bit slow to adopt ! We have same problem in the UK, but there is currently a bill going forward to change this situation, and we already got something on the statute book recently about Police dogs & horses attacked in line of duty. Not sure what the position actually is in Germany at this time, on pets-as-property, pet theft, official animal duties assaults, sentencing policies, etc.
