The elderly owner of a rescue dog which was snatched from her on Sunday evening in Woodford Green is appealing for help to find her beloved pet.
On Sunday, December 13 around 8.30pm, rescue dog Buster was taken while his owner was walking him in Horn Lane and Fairfield Road.
A woman with brown hair allegedly bent down to pet the dog and then a tall man came up from behind and unbuckled the lead and the couple walked away with the dog.
Dog-loving neighbours were appalled to hear the news and have offered up a £2,000 reward towards the safe return of Buster.
The owner, a pensioner, has urged anyone with CCTV footage in the area, or information to come forward and call 07930 534502.

"There have been no arrests."
