12-year-old dog stolen while tied up outside Toronto store: police

The owners of a 12-year-old Chihuahua mix are asking for help finding their pet, which was stolen outside a store in Toronto on Wednesday morning.

Monica Furman told CP24 that she tied up her dog named Spencer outside a Dollarama store in the area of ​​Dundas Street West and Dovercourt Road around 10 a.m. before she went in to shop with her two-year-old daughter.

“I came out about five, ten minutes later and my dog ​​was gone,” Furman said.

“I do not know the motivation was behind taking him. We just want him back.”

Wednesday night, Toronto police released a photo of the man they believe took Spencer.

He is described as in his early 30s, unshaven with a medium build.

Suspected of theft

Police said he was wearing a dark sweater with the word “Ecko” on his chest, dark-colored sweatpants and a black baseball cap with a white sticker. He was carrying a black bag.

The dog is described as brown and tan in color and weighs 27 pounds. He was wearing a black leash with a blue paw print.

“It’s a crime of opportunity. And often people seize the moment when this pet is left unattended to save their escape with the animal,” says Konst. said Alex Li.

“As a pet owner, I can understand that it is devastating to them and anyone who is a pet owner.”

Furman and her partner Robin Ellwood got Spencer from a shelter more than ten years ago. Elwood described the dog as irreplaceable and “one of a kind.”

“He’s never been away from us one day in his life,” he said. “The bottom line is his part of our family. He’s a family member. We need him more than anything.”

While Furman regrets leaving Spencer outside, she said the man should not have taken her dog.

“I do not think that is right,” she said. “He should not have done that.”


Their two children are crushed, the couple said, adding that their five-year-old son was crying when he heard about what happened to their pet.

“When he came home from school – tears in his eyes. He’s as broken as we are. He’s lost his best friend,” Ellwood said.

They appeal to the man who took Spencer to “have it in your heart to return him safe and sound.”

Ellwood added, “Put the dog down. Do what’s right. You have nothing to do with having this dog. He needs us to take care of him. He needs his family, and we need him. . “

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
