So how much of a problem is dog theft. Will all the people abandoning their dogs I would think anyone would need to steal one.

I disagree. Another mind reader, apparently. Strictly speaking, the dog would be the "victim."

A dog is property, like a bicycle. The owners were victims of theft.

Your last little sentence is a total and silly non sequitur.
"From time to time." LOL! That's when your dog can get stolen - the time you're not looking.

? ? ? What on earth does that "what if" have to do with the stolen dachshund? My dogs weren't the ones stolen. Let me break it down for you a little easier then, I am in front of the kitchen window, doing whatever, a window that looks directly out into the yard. I definitely would notice anyone entering said yard by my back gate and whistle for my dogs to come in. If they were going to be out there for any length of time, I would sit on the deck and join them. I did not consider my dogs to be "property" as some other poster stated. They were part of my family.

They stole a purebred Dachshund, which is worth money. Dogs are family members, if someone stole my Dachshund I'd be ready to kill them to get him back.

I wouldn't go that far, but I'd certainly do something. My family rescued West Highland White breeders. They were all stupid or had emotional problems. The one sloppy, loving, Springer Spaniel had a problem with food. You couldn't go anywhere near him when there was food in his dish. Years of trying and training didn't help.
