A pair of dog owners fear their precious pooch may have been stolen - because of its big nipples.

Steve Laws was out walking Ruby, the Dogue de Bordeaux he owns with partner Heather Hall, in Rosehill at 8pm on Sunday when something spooked her and she ran into the road.

Ruby was clipped by two cars but appeared to be unhurt as she ran away. Mr Laws could not keep up and the three-year-old got away.

Ruby was spotted later that evening near Middleton Road but has not been seen since.

The couple have been out searching for their pet to no avail and fear she may have been stolen due to her big nipples.

Ms Hall said: "It sounds weird but she has very big nipples.

"I'm concerned that someone might have taken her because they thought she was pregnant and the puppies are worth quite a lot of money. She isn't pregnant though.

"She's really important to us. I hope if someone's got her they get a guilty conscience and give her back."

If you see Ruby, you can call Mr Laws on 07831 411374.

I'm not an expert but wouldn't "teats" be a nicer word?

Lol, indeed, crease2000 :-)

Dog may have been on a lead, article doesn't specify. But dogs can get away even when on a lead if they bolt. Can snap a lead right out of your hand esp when a big strong dog gets spooked.

why not on lead? then it couldn't run off and get hurt. and it couldn't hurt anyone else. dog owners need to be more responsible. if it is that big it poses a risk to others and shouldn't be out and about amongst the general population.

Where in the article does it say the dog was in fact off a lead? Stop assuming. If she was off a lead, then yes, the owners were in the wrong for several reasons. But we don't know for sure, now do we? Stop jumping to conclusions to back up your dog hating position. Be open to the idea this may have just been a miserable accident.

This is a very gentle breed! Even on a lead, any dog can get spooked.
