UPDATE: The Scott-Iverson family says their dog has been returned. They say the lady who took Emma told them she thought the dog was lost.
VANCOUVER, B.C. — A family in Deep Cove is devastated; they believe a woman took their puppy from the front yard of their home.
Michael Scott-Iverson told Global News the family’s four-month old Australian Shepherd Puppy, Emma, was running around their front and back-yards this afternoon. His 18-year-old son noticed a woman pull up in a black sedan and walk towards their house. He went to see what she wanted, but by the time he got outside she was gone and so was the dog.
Scott-Iverson said Emma doesn’t have a history of running away and has been with their family for two months.
The Scott-Iversons, along with their family and friends are getting the message of the stolen dog out through social media and also will be papering the neighborhood. They’ve contacted the RCMP, SPCA, local veterinarians and Australian Shepherd dog clubs.
“She’s a great pup,” said Scott Iverson. “She has very unique markings. She’s not an average looking dog. She will stand out”
As for the woman who allegedly took her, she’s described as in her twenties, blonde with a medium build and around 5’7 inches tall.
The family lives in the Mount Seymour Parkway neighborhood.
