You can watch a clip of Vicky discussing the incident below:
"Today was the scariest day we've had since getting Milo," Vicky explained in a post.
"He was out with his lovely dog walker and as he dropped off one of Milo's friends, someone stole his van with my baby and some of his friends in the back... We got the call at this point and I instantly just broke down, sobbing crying and fearing the worst... I've literally never felt fear like it."
Vicky, 34, explained that luckily, the van was found abandoned with the dogs still inside, but admitted that she felt 'helpless and devastated' while waiting for news.
"Long story short guys, the van was found abandoned by the police on some estate with the fur babies still in the back thank god. But honestly, that period of not knowing and worrying was just horrific – I felt so helpless and devastated," she continued.
"Luckily this ended happily this time but things could have been very different. Milo is a resilient and brave boy and seems fine after his traumatic afternoon but I just can't spend time thinking about the alternative.
"I don't understand what type of person steals another person's property, and worse still, when they realise that there are living, breathing animals in the back – abandons them in a hot van in the middle of nowhere not caring what happens to them.
"I'd call them animals but they don't deserve it – they are utter scumbags. Should be ashamed of themselves. You make me sick."
Vicky explained Milo is now back safe and sound with her and fiancé Ercan, and being spoilt rotten.
"Milo is now back with his mammy and daddy and being spoilt rotten as he should be and we are just so happy and grateful… Thank you all for your messages of concern," she wrote.
Friends and followers were quick to offer their support to Vicky, with Love Island's Shaughna Phillips writing: "Omg the actual fear your must have felt I cannot even imagine... so glad he’s back home where he belongs."
Georgia Kousoulou added: "Omg vick. I’m so happy he is safe."
"Oh no!!! Glad he's back safe and sound... I know how heartbreaking that would have been for you both. Hope you're all OK," said another.
We're so glad Milo is home!
