A rally was held in Langley tonight by the owners of six dogs that were allegedly stolen from an off-leash park.

Police say the dogs were taken out of the back of a pickup truck while it was parked at the Brookswood dog park located at 206 Street and 44 Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.

The dog walker put the dogs in the back of her pickup truck to use the washroom.

The owners say they believe their animals were stolen, and did not just escape from the vehicle.

An extended search of the park was performed last night, but did not turn up any solid leads.

A fundraising page has also been set up to help cover the cost of the search.

The missing dogs are: black and white pit bull Mia, grey Bouvier Poodle cross Teemo, black and white Boston Terrier Buddy, black and brown Rottweiler/Husky cross Oscar, Border Collie Salty and grey and black Blue Heeler/Shepherd cross Molly.
