Wyndham North police are appealing for public assistance after ‘Addie’ the Kelpie was stolen from a car in Tarneit over the weekend.
Police have been told the three-year-old dog was left in the car with the windows down at a shopping centre car park on Derrimut Road from 8.15am to 8.30am on Saturday 9 April.
It is believed a man gained entry to the driver’s side door of the vehicle and stole the dog, placing her in his car before driving away in a white sedan.
Police have ongoing enquiries to make in relation to the man involved but are appealing for information from the public to help locate Addie.
An image of Addie has been released in the hope someone may recognise her and provide information on her whereabouts.
