A four-year-old boy with special needs in Peterborough, Ontario is missing his best friend again tonight. The dog was stolen from in front of the No Frills grocery store on George St. around 9:45 yesterday morning.
The dog is a three-year-old Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix.
Lukas Smith, goes to Five Counties Children’s Centre in Peterborough two times a week to improve his speech and fine-motor skills and recived the dog from family following his father’s death in 2010.
The dog was stolen after his leash was tied to a bike rack outside the George street grocery store. The search for the dog continued early this morning.
This story broke my heart as soon as I heard, in a city so beautiful as Peterborough, it’s sickening that things like this can happen. Especially to a boy with special needs. Something has to be done, and there needs to be a happy ending.
There is word the family will pay a $200 reward for Bailey’s return. Bailey is brown with white spots on his face, nose and chest, and was wearing a green scarf tied to his neck.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service at 705-876-1122, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or Leslie Smith at 705-930-9437.
