Toronto police say a 10-year-old Siberian Huskey dog has been located and returned to its owners after the Siberian Husky was allegedly stolen from in front of an east-end store.
Police said someone called in Thursday morning to say they found the dog near Ashbridges Bay Park.
Carol Bouley, the dog’s owner, told Global News a woman saw a flyer for the missing dog and went to the Beaches to look for him. That is when she said the woman found a dog that matched Charlie’s description, sitting on some rocks.
The woman called out his name and the dog came to her. Bouley said the woman phoned her and sent her a photo of the dog, adding she’s “super excited” to be reunited with Charlie.
She said she was told the two men who were with Charlie had walked away. Bouley also said Charlie’s regular collar was removed and a new one had been put on him.
Police originally said in a statement Wednesday night that Charlie was left outside of a store in the Amroth and Danforth avenues area, just east of Woodbine Avenue, at around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
“Two unknown men, and an unknown woman untied Charlie and left the area on foot toward a Green P parking lot,” the statement said.
Though the dog has been found, the suspects are still outstanding.
The first male suspect was described as 5’10”, approximately 30 years old, long hair with half of it being in a ponytail and missing some teeth. He was last seen wearing narrow track pants.
The second male suspect was described as approximately 30 years old and having a heavy build with a round face and short brown hair. He was seen wearing heavy-rimmed glasses.
The female suspect was described as approximately 30 years old and having a short build with brown hair in a ponytail. She was seen pulling a metal shopping cart with a floral print on the inside.
