Police are asking the public for help in finding a stolen dog.
Foxy is a 10-year-old Pomeranian who was stolen in the 800-block Brunette Avenue in Coquitlam at around 7 p.m. Aug. 23, said RCMP.
She was out with her owner when she was grabbed by a man, police said.
“Foxy was born in my house, she has been with me forever,” said Foxy’s owner in a news release issued by Coquitlam RCMP Friday. The owner was not identified.
The dog is well-loved in the community and police are working to return Foxy to her family, said police, which also released a photo of a man holding Foxy in both hands.
The man is described as dark-skinned with a medium build, short brown curly hair. At the time of the incident, he was dressed in a black collar shirt, black pants, and black shoes.
Anyone who spots Foxy or has information on the man who took her is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550.
