New: Camberwell woman heartbroken after puppy stolen in Coldharbour Lane

A Camberwell animal-lover is distraught after her beloved puppy Bimba was stolen earlier this month.

The terrier-cross was taken while it was tied up outside King’s Laundrette in Coldharbour Lane at around midday on April 4.

Cristina Branciaroli told the News that the 10-month-old dog was “like my child”, and urged anyone with information to get in touch.

The 34-year-old said: “I bring her everywhere with me. I only went into the laundrette for 5 minutes but when I came out, she was gone. She wouldn’t have just run off – she would have come to me if she had got loose.

“I don’t know if someone took her to sell, or maybe some kids liked her and wanted to keep her. I just want her back.”

Cristina has “loved Bimba since the beginning”, when she was given the dog by a homeless man in Ibiza, Spain who could not care for her anymore.

She said: “I promised to look after her. She’s like my soul, we are always together. I am single and I don’t have kids – my kid is my dog.”

Bimba is golden-brown in colour with dark eyes. She is micro-chipped, and was wearing a pink coat when she was taken.

Anyone with information should call Cristina at 07541235495 or 02073788162.
