THE frantic owner two pooches missing after a professional dog-sitter ‘lost’ them says she’ll pay a ransom demand to get her pets back.
Louise Lawford was looking after five dogs for three owners when she claimed they suddenly ran away.
She says they were spooked by sudden gunshots and bolted while they were being walked in Hopwas Woods, near Tamworth, Staffs on Sunday afternoon.
Frantic owners asked the West Midlands Police to investigate whether the dogs are stolen.
And alarm bells rang when Louise stopped taking their calls and disappeared from her rented house.
