Two dogs remain missing in Winnipeg following the theft of a vehicle on Monday containing 10 canines trained to sniff out bedbugs.
Police say eight dogs were found in the area of Parkville Drive at around 6:30 a.m. after a homeowner made a complaint about the animals in their yard.
Police say an ambulance-style vehicle had been stolen from the 2900 block of Pembina Highway earlier this morning and the animals got loose.
Two dogs are believed to be running loose in the south Pembina Highway or Parkville Drive area of the city. The dogs are used to detect bedbugs and are considered friendly.
They are described as:
- One yellow, five-year-old Labrador named Titan wearing a silver choke collar
- One silver, seven-month-old Labrador named Bailey wearing a yellow collar
Anyone who find Titan or Bailey is asked to call police at (204) 986-6222.
