Rescued Dog is OK, But Cops Really Want to Find His Owner
Over the weekend Los Angeles County Sherriff's deputies rescued a German Pointer from a locked car when they feared the hot temperature would affect the dog's health. The rescue, however, led to the discovery of over $10,000 in cash and $24,000 worth of marijuana. The dog is doing great, but the cops really (really, really) want to find the owner.
The dog, who was transported from the scene in West Hollywood to the Carson Animal Care Center, is doing well, says the Department of Animal Car and Control (DACC). Their staff have nicknamed the dog Hunter.
"Although a bit timid and nervous when initially rescued from the vehicle, he has calmed down after getting to know DACC staff and volunteers," notes the DACC in an email. "Hunter is being kept safe and comfortable while in the Department’s care," they add.
The trouble is, the LASD are having some trouble locating the owner of the dog. The owner may be reluctant to come forward, however, since the cash and drugs in the vehicle have launched an investigation.
If anyone recognizes Hunter, please contact the DACC Communications Center at 310-523-9566 or the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department at 310- 855-8850 with any information you may have about Hunter’s owner.
