Actress in plea over stolen dog
Jonathan Creek star Sheridan Smith has been left shaken after her beloved dog Enid was stolen from her home, she has revealed.
The 29-year-old 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.
Smith 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.
Smith revealed: "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 Smith 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."
