It turns out Cashin had spotted the boxer puppy and a small white dog running free, and was containing them while calling the SPCA himself to make sure they were rescued safely.
The South Peace SPCA is now thanking him for his “good Samaritan efforts”, and is reminding dog owners that it is their responsibility to keep their pets safely confined. In a comment on their facebook page, the branch says, “With concern about missing dogs in our area we would certainly hope that owners will take extra precautions to keep their dogs from running at large.”
Dawson Creek RCMP have reported that as many as 20 domestic dogs have been reported stolen in and around Dawson Creek in the past few weeks. All the dogs are reportedly medium to large-sized breeds with gentle temperaments. Police have yet to release details on a possible motive for the dog-nappings or if they have any suspects in the case, but an investigation is ongoing.
The SPCA says they are grateful for both Cashin and the resident who called the police for looking out for the safety of dogs in Dawson Creek. Anyone with information about these pet thefts is urged to contact the local detachment at 250-784-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
