Puppies that went missing from a Napanee alpaca farm Tuesday morning are now back with their mother.
According to Ashley Braun, one of the owners of Hickory Lane Alpacas, two Great Pyrenees puppies from their litter of nine were taken while they were out front with their mother Tuesday morning.
After putting a call out on social media, she says the puppies were returned to the farm, freshly bathed.
“They smell of flowers now instead of the barn,” she said.
Braun said the puppies were out by the road when they disappeared, where someone could have easily picked them up. After spending hours looking for them, she says the mother became very distressed when she could not find them.
The puppies are only six weeks old and not weened from their mother yet.
The farm reported the possible theft to local OPP, but Braun says now that they have returned, they will not be pursuing any charges.
“We’re just happy to have them back,” Braun said.
Police have yet to respond to a request for comment.
