I have spent the last few days on Facebook looking at all the missing dogs that have been snatched and it is discusseding, in my eyes if you can snatch a dog you can snatch a child! and to some there children are there dogs it should be treated the same as kidnapping.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

We can't accept your petition because we aren't sure what action you would like the UK Government or Parliament to take.

There is no single sentence for child abduction. This is decided by the court.

You could start a new petition asking for dog theft to be a specific crime and setting out the lowest sentence you would like given if that's something you would like to happen.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
