Labrador puppy reported stolen

William Ferchland

A 5-month-old purebred yellow Labrador puppy named Gonzo was reported stolen from Shoreline Ski & Sports, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy reported.

The puppy was sitting at his typical place at the entrance of the store on Kingsbury Grade while its owner, a 25-year-old employee, was tending to other matters in the rear of the store. A different employee last saw Gonzo being held by a Caucasian woman in her 20s or 30s with brown hair and about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds.

The other employee was then distracted by a customer. The puppy was discovered missing and surrounding businesses and wooded areas were searched, the deputy stated. The owner said it was uncharacteristic of Gonzo to wander off, and the puppy would come bounding when his name was called, the deputy reported.

Gonzo is described as being 30 pounds, about 1 1/2 feet tall. He had a red collar with bones on it and tags with his name and the owner’s name.
