A Great Dane that was stolen from a home in Cold Lake, Alta. could possibly be in Nanaimo, RCMP say.
According to Nanaimo RCMP, the owner of three Great Danes that were stolen from a rural property in Cold Lake contacted them after she received a call from a man who said he may have seen one of her dogs.
The caller told the owner that a man was walking a Great Dane, which appeared to resemble one of her stolen dogs, on Nov. 7 at Colliery Dam Park. The caller said when the individual with the dog was asked about whether it was stolen, they quickly turned and walk away.
According to police, the phone connection was poor and the call was disconnected before the caller could provide a description of the man walking the dog.
Police said all three dogs were taken from the owner’s property approximately seven weeks ago. The theft was reported to the Cold Lake RCMP and was posted on various social media sites.
Police said the dog seen at Collier Dam may have been Sheldon, who is two-and-a-half-years-old and has a brindle (brownish/tawny) colouring. The other two stolen dogs are Sherlock and Honey Bee. Sherlock is four-years-old and fawn coloured. Heidi is eight-years-old and also fawn coloured. All three dogs have a microchip implanted.
Anyone with information on the theft or the possible sighting of the dog is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
