A dog owner has been left distraught after her pet was stolen by a fake Good Samaritan while she was having a heart attack. Kat Conway, 50, was out walking her Shih Poo called Jessie near St Pancras Station in north London when she collapsed to the pavement last Monday.

She remembers a blond man rushing over to help her but says he then ran off with the apricot-coloured pooch.

Kat was rushed to hospital and has since been discharged, but there is still no sign of Jessie.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Forty-five percent of pet owners say they occasionally (or frequently) buy presents for their animals.

Now back home in Glasgow, she said: ‘I’m really worried about her.

‘She’s always with me and is my shadow.

‘This is breaking my heart and all I want is her back home so I can cuddle her.’
