From My Dog Walker: Dog Theft in West Newton

Lost (stolen?) Newton Dog Has Been Found

A client’s dog-pal went missing from their yard in West Newton last night and was MIA through the morning hours today. The pup’s Mom was called by the Quincy VCA  letting her know that they had her dog….

Quincy…… 
Some additionally suspect information:
My pal was brought in by two young men (possibly in their 20’s) who supposedly found him in someone’s yard.  Then, rather than bring him to the Newton Police / a Newton animal hospital, they opted to bring him back to Quincy with them.  Finally, somewhere along the way my pal’s ID tag “fell off”… yet his rabies tag was coincidentally still fully intact.
Thankfully this pal of mine is microchipped. Although these chips do not serve a GPS-like function, it is in all likelihood the only reason my buddy wasn’t sold to some unsuspecting other family, who had no idea that they just purchased / adopted a stolen Samoyed. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if these “good samaritans” have a microchip scanner (purchasable on Amazon for under $100) and after learning that my pal is chipped, brought him to the VCA since he was not sellable after all.
I am not trying to scare anyone….  On the other hand, if your pal is not yet microchipped please consider getting the procedure done!!  It is quick, inexpensive, and could truly save your buddy.
