Stolen dog returned

Former owner forced to give up dog for a second time.

On Aug. 29 at 10:54 pm a 38 year old Cache Creek woman reported that her dog had been stolen from her yard while she was at work. She said she suspected the dog’s previous owners, as neighbours said they saw a pair of teens hanging around her property.

The dog had originally been acquired by an Ashcroft family. The father decided to find a new home for it in March as his teenaged daughter wasn’t taking adequate care of it. Police located the 15 year old and her 16 year old boyfriend, and both admitted to taking the dog. The young woman advised that she still cared for the dog and had been looking for it. When she found it in Cache Creek she and her boyfriend waited until the new owner left her house before taking the dog. They went back to Ashcroft and left the dog at another residence.

After being told they would have to return it to its current owner, the officer and teenagers retrieved the dog and drove back to Cache Creek. The 15 year old said she planned to get a lawyer to help get her dog back. The two were told they were not welcome at the dog’s new home.
