A dog that was stolen from its owner along a Whitby street last week has been found safe in Brampton.
Four-year-old Nina, described as a bulldog, was taken by two men on December 30 while she was being walked around 11 p.m. near Ash and Mary Sts. in Whitby.
The dog’s female owner, and another women who witnessed the abduction, tried to fight off the men but were sprayed with an unknown substance.
This week, Brampton Animal Services contacted Durham Regional Police and told them Nina was found wandering outside of a hotel on Nevets Rd. in Brampton.
After getting checked out by a veterinarian, Nina has now been reunited with her owner.
