Stolen Blackburn puppy found dead by rail track

Lancashire Telegraph: Rottweiler Diesel’s body was found four days after he was reported stolen Rottweiler Diesel’s body was found four days after he was reported stolen

A PUPPY stolen from its kennel was found dead beside a railway line days later.

The dismembered body of nine-month-old German Rottweiler Diesel was found by the tracks near the bridge, in Queen’s Road, Blackburn, four days after he was reported stolen.

It is believed he had been hit by a train.

The thieves had forced the back gate of a terrace house, and then kicked their way into a shed to reach the dog.

His devastated owners are now pleading for anybody with information about their pet to call police.

Kubra Mahmood, 21, said: “I am absolutely devastated.

“He was like a member of our family.

“He was like a child who we nurtured from being a couple of weeks old and, when you find out they are dead, it just breaks your heart.”

The black and tan dog is understood to have been taken from the back yard of the family home, in Steiner Street, Accrington, overnight on December 18.

Miss Mahmood said the thieves also took an elec-tric heater used to keep their pet warm, and special lighting.

Her brother Ateek, 18, said: “Somebody must have seen something, or know who did this.

“They must have known Diesel to know that he was not a vicious dog, even though he was really, really big.

“Even though we only had Diesel for a short time, he had a huge impact on our family.”

PC Anna Gavela, from the planned response unit, appealed for information.

She said: “The offenders forced the rear gate of the terrace house and then kicked their way into the shed and took the puppy out.

“It has now been found dead on a railway line.

“I would appeal for any-body who knows anything about this incident to get in touch with us.”

Anybody with inform-ation should call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anon- ymously on 0800 555111.

Our correspondent darwen Tower's remark seems quite serious in intent. For me, the proper place to keep my Staffordshire is on or in bed. When I collected him from rescue I was asked where he would sleep and thought it a trick question. I join dT in thinking that this domestic arrangement is odd.

Our dog is like 'one of the family', she sleeps in her basket or on the sofa.

It was actually an fully furnished extension, seriously? you'd rather crack lame jokes when a loved puppy was stolen and killed.

I'm not cracking a lame joke.

Dogs aren't from the wild, they have been domesticated over somewhere between 20,000 and 100,000 years.

They don't live in sheds. Any dog lovers would be better focussing their emotion towards people who think it's OK to keep a dog in a shed.

There is a reason for the existence of kennels, look it up. Deisel was nurtured from 8 weeks old, loved and looked after. Instead of pointing out irrelevant factors, try acknowledging the fact he was STOLEN and as good as KILLED, and the people responsible are out there, and our hearts are broken. Have some shame. It could happen to anybody! Even you.

The police, rspca, animal welfare, all don't have a problem with keeping a dog in a kennel. This Article is misleading, we don't live in blackburn nor was diesel found there. The same as he didn't live in a 'shed'. He hated being indoors, he panicked in out terraced house (he was 80kg at 10 months)You have no idea, people like you are justifying what these criminals have done, disgusting!!!!!

Dog breeding? On an alone puppy of 10 months, are you mentally challenged? How does lighting and a heater help reproduction, our puppy was a healthy happy chap, with the shiniest black coat, well looked after, the vets were full of compliments.,because WE loved him, i refuse to comment back to you disgusting people, we're grieving. And when whoever done this gets away with it, i do hope your dogs are safe (you cant always be with them)

Well, if you refuse to 'comment back' then your will is evidently weak. Thanks for your hope that my and others' dogs are safe. I employ high-definition surveillance systems at home and take other measures I'd be foolish to mention here. I recommend such precautions to you.

If my mind is narrow then yours is also rather slim. You can't expect to get away with claiming that this is 'about deisel'. Comment here may or may not match your expectation. If you're so easily wound up then it might have been a better idea to not co-operate with the press.

Yes, matters usually develop in that direction when I've contributed a remark or two. I am an utterly foolish and senseless person in this and other contexts, yet I see that Father Amazon has been and gone during the night.

Merry Christmas, or Nadolig Llawen if you're Welsh.

Looks to me that mr Hartley is a bit of a keyboard warrior...Probably someone who didnt recieve much love as a child and is upset at the fact the mutt in question has been given a touch more love and attention than he ever recieved..hence the nitpicking!

Ultimately the pups been taken from an environment where it was cared for and loved, irrespective of how his name is spelt. It's a sad state of affairs.

Yes, though a kennel doesn't offer much protection against the theft of its occupant.. Our correspondent Kubby26 advises us that Diesel's quarters were '...actually an fully furnished extension, seriously?' which doesn't give much away. The door wasn't very sturdy, if the report is correct, Yet if the report is correct then the principals are not. '...nine-month-old German Rottweiler Diesel...' was ten-month-old deisel. Better for the principals if this report had not appeared in a forum so replete with 'keyboard warriors' and worse.

The argument from Chadrob above, "not everyone keep there dogs in their house, and they are actually from the wild." was correctly countered by darwenTower, and further it must be considered that dogs have been selectively bred according to human principles. If dogs are 'from the wild' then so are humans, and this would be true even if humans really were made by God from dirt.

What reasoning guides you to the probability that I didn't receive much love as a child and so am upset that a dog is more loved? You might as well claim that I had an unhappy experience on or around Steiner Street because I attended a school near there, and was at least once unjustifiably punished.

What reasoning guides you to the probability that I didn't receive much love as a child and so am upset that a dog is more loved? You might as well claim that I had an unhappy experience on or around Steiner Street because I attended a school near there, and was at least once unjustifiably punished. That this is true does not make it a reason to upset any who live there. I like the expression 'keyboard warrior' and will use it in one or other of my 'twisted' ways. Thanks.
I think you should get professional help for your so called "unhappy experience " near Steiner St. If you don't have the courage to do this then maybe you should share the aforementioned unhappy experience with the forum who maybe able to counsel you,
I think I shouldn't, since I invented that story. Such an interesting response - I must invent more.

It would be accurate to say the article is poorly written and In some quarters factually incorrect. But that's the way of the Telegraph in this day and age. I daren't say you could recruit budding journalists from the local infant school that would write more accurate news stories.

It would also be fair to say, someone has gone to a lot of trouble to take this doggy away from it's owners, they obviously cared for it and loved it a great deal.

And to conclude, I agree with Pat and Mr Banford, it's a sad tale. It's also made worse by idiots like Graham Hartley who probably has nothing better to do than sit behind his keyboard and set the world to rights, as it goes in his sad little mind.

Well done Graham, you get my 'tit' of the year award for 2013. Please carry on posting the nonsense because you obviously have nothing better to do 👍

As I suspected, this is a classic case of denial, Graham Hartley you have told us all of an unhappy experience you had as a child around Steiner Street, now you are telling us you invented this story. I put it to you Graham, you did in fact have an unhappy experience as a child and you have been bottling it up and not talking about it for some years, this in turn has caused psychological issues leading to bitter and twisted comments left here. I personally think the experience you refer to may be bullying at school which I do not condone, in your case however I understand why it happened.

You could do a speech..what are your oratory skills like? If they're as good as your posts, bring your mack..eggs and flour will probably be on the menu!

On a more caring note, you can tell us about your experience Graham..I'm sure there's a queue of people that care about what you went through (or maybe not judging by the feedback on your posts). If you wrote to and met Jimmy Saville as a lad..then that explains everything..may the good lord Shepard you for the duration x

Merry Christmas, or Nadolig Llawen if you're Welsh.
Thanks, Dave_P, for supporting me against the cyber-bullies.

Have a happy new year when it arrives. They're free for as long as they come.

Many of the comments on here smack of racism...huge numbers of dogs are kept outdoors in kennels or sheds. To say this was leading up to Christmas, the lack of compassion in the comments was grotesque. If the family had been white, I daresay there would have been much more sympathy. Well, I hope you all feel good about yourselves, it must be really nice to criticise a family whose dog was stolen and left to be killed.

I think people on here should be ashamed of themselves. If you don't have anything constructive to say then stay quiet. The terror that poor dog must of gone through in the lead up to its death is enough to give any animal lover nightmares. I know of plenty of people who's beloved dogs live outside in kennels with a heat lamp to keep them warm and it chills me to think that their pets could end up enduring the same treatment as poor diesel!!!!

Maybe rather than arguing amongst yourselves maybe coming up with ideas to try and find the disgusting low lives that did this and bringing them to justice would be a better idea. As just think once they are bored of doing this to an animal possibly a child could be next!!!!!
