Sheridan appeals over stolen dog
Sheridan Smith has been left shaken after her beloved dog Enid was stolen from her home.
The 29-year-old Jonathan Creek actress - currently starring in the musical Legally Blonde - was only recently reunited with the black female Shar-Pei after she went missing earlier this month.
Sheridan has taken to Twitter to appeal for help in finding Enid yet again, but wrote: "I don't know how to get through this."
She made the internet appeal after discussing the matter with police, revealing the dog was stolen form her London home on Thursday.
She said: "The police are convinced that it is a repeat offence and that last time was no accident. On their advice, I can't give too much information. She needs daily medication and I'm worried about her health and safety."
When Enid went missing earlier this month, Sheridan appealed to her Twitter followers for help, and Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles spoke about her disappearance on the radio. When the dog, who is micro-chipped for identification purposes, was found in Dagenham and taken to Battersea Dogs Home, staff recognised her from the appeal.
But some Twitter users have been less than sympathetic about this second disappearance, stating she should have learned from the first time.
Daniel Butler wrote: "Got no sympathy. To get it stolen once is terrible, but twice is completely stupid on your part. Didn u learn u lesson." Sheridan protested: "She was stolen from my home! How could I stop them?! You heartless cruel human being."
Bel Reed tweeted: "sheridansmith1's dog Enid has been stolen again... maybe Sheridan should stop being so careless with her dog?"
Sheridan replied: "If u think i'm careless 4 having the dog I care more than anything about taken from the safety of my home,u r a care/heartless lady."
