Var, Pas-de-Calais, Corrèze, Seine-Maritime… On social networks, reactions in support of the owner of Sunny, a 4 month old puppy stolen from Plouarzel (29), on April 29, went far beyond the borders of Brittany. That day, finishing her walk, Nathalie has just installed her miniature American shepherd in the front of her vehicle when she is stopped by a couple who want information about their pet-sitting microbusiness, based in Brest. It is only after they leave, in a “white van” that she realizes the disappearance of her dog: the strap to which he was tied has been cut. She files a complaint and decides to tell her misadventure on his Facebook page and his Instagram account “Bblalanimo”. The local media relay his call for help and, on social networks, the machine is racing: hundreds of messages are sent to him and thousands of people share his story. “I hope he will be found,” wrote Elaine, from Paris. “I am sad for you and for this little dog”, testifies Brigitte, installed in Gironde.
Several celebrities to the rescue
If, regularly, stories of missing animals arouse many emotional reactions on social networks, this one seems to particularly touch the hearts of Internet users. Especially since the hairball was stolen from the beard of his mistress. The story came to the ears of singer Julien Doré, who was performing in Brest on Friday May 6. On his Instagram account, the interpreter of the title “Waf”, visibly upset by the news, posted a video in which he calls for help from his community of more than 777,000 subscribers, to find the animal, “stolen […] by big bastards.
“I haven’t been robbed of my cell phone or my purse so no, I don’t just have to take another one as I heard! writes Sunny’s owner. The actor and producer Dominique Farrugia also shared the wanted notice. On the airwaves, host Julien Courbet told the story at the microphone of RTL radio.
The media frenzy did not stop there: a video, in which the Finistère woman asks for help, exceeded one million views, appealing to other media such as nice morningMonday or again BFM TV this Tuesday. “Thanks to them, I was able to know your story, share and ask all my contacts to relay as well…”, writes a surfer from Hérault, on Facebook. Much in demand, Nathalie writes that she no longer wishes to “be contacted by mediums and dowsers. I have hundreds of messages and calls a day, it’s no longer manageable! “, she says, also sharing on her networks examples of attempted scams and malicious messages received in recent days.
For now, the dog has not been found, but his mistress is putting all her energy into it. The latter, who did not respond to our requests, put her professional activity on hold. She launched an online kitty which exceeded 1,500 euros and plans, “if there is no lead”, to “hire a private detective to find his trace”.
Anyone with any information that could help the investigation progress is invited to contact the Saint-Renan gendarmerie on 02 98 84 21 13.
