Help Needed to Reunite Dog with Owner

Monday, July 13, 2020

​Animal Control is seeking any information on a dog that was rehomed by a citizen through Craigslist on June 30, 2020. The citizen rehomed the dog after obtaining it through Craigslist earlier that day under false pretenses. The dog did not fit in well with her family, and a text app was utilized to communicate with a new owner for the dog. The new owner is believed to be a female with a child living in the Hampton area with access to a white 4 door sedan type car and came to pick up the dog in Norfolk near the Norfolk Outlet Mall.  

 

The dog is described as a female white Pomeranian Chihuahua mix approximately 4-5 years old. The dog was listed on Craigslist initially by citizen that found the dog on June 28, 2020 in the City of Virginia Beach. The dog has an owner who is missing her pet, and we would like to assist in the return of her pet. A photo of the dog is attached below.  

 

Anyone with information regarding the owner is encouraged to call Virginia Beach Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP (1-888-562-5887) or by submitting a tip by texting "VBTIP" and the information to CRIMES (274637). Callers remain anonymous and could be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward if their information leads to an arrest.

 

The case remains under investigation by Animal Control Officer Casey Harrell as the lead investigator.
