Portland police probe case of stolen puppy

By David Hench, The Portland Press-Herald

Portland police are trying to locate a woman who appears to have stolen the dog of a man who was homeless until recently.
Stephen Osborne said he was shooting a game of pool in Matthew's on Free Street Sunday and had left his 10-month-old, black labrador-pit bull mix tied to a post outside. When he came out at 6:05 p.m., Maverick was missing.
He called police and they examined security video that showed a middle-aged woman untying the dog and walking off with him.
Osborne said he is devoted to his dog. The pair were homeless when he came to Portland earlier this year looking for work and though he has since found a place to live, he said losing the dog has been devastating.
Police asked that anyone with information call 874-8533.

  1. Uh...yeah.
    Me, too.
    I'm devoted to my dogs, so I tie them up in public -unsupervised- while I shoot pool.
