Police have launched an investigation after two dogs were stolen on June 8 from their kennels that were locked in Hazlett Street, Clyde, Otago.

19-month-old Arlo (left), a purebred male bluenose Staffordshire grey coloured dog, was stolen, along with 13-year-old black Huntaway/Beardie cross Wolf (right).

Wolf had been found on midday of 13 June in a ditch on the side of the road with sustained injuries indicating mistreatment — now recovering at home. Arlo was found on the evening of June 17 on the side of Springvale road and had lost weight. He has a nervous disposition.

Alexandra Police' Prevention Sergeant Derek Ealson says it is an awful situation.

“A person who steals a dog and mistreats it is a heartless criminal. We don’t know what has exactly happened to the dogs; however, the owner is very pleased to have them back,” he said.

“Police would like to find the person or people responsible for this burglary. We would like to speak to the driver of a white double-cab ute that was seen in the area at the time the dog was found.”

“The ute has black trim, tinted windows, and red writing on the side of it.”

If you were on Springvale Road, Clyde, around 5 pm on 17 June and saw this vehicle, or have any other information, please contact Police on 105 and quote the file number 210613/3725 or call Crimestoppers on 800 555 111.
