Another one assumed stolen/GA

Police K9 Believed Stolen From Kennel - Cartersville, GA Patch
Police K9 Believed Stolen From Kennel
The 5-year-old male German Shepherd, Riki, described as friendly and not aggressive, is set to be trained to sniff out narcotics.

The K9 officer who last week rallied the community in support of a police dog injured in the line of duty is asking again for our help.

This time, the cause is closer to home. Cartersville resident, former Bartow County Sheriff’s Office drug interdiction deputy and current Doraville Police Department K9 Officer Chris Day believes a police dog residing at his home has been stolen.

Riki, a 5-year-old male German Shepherd, disappeared from the area of Center and Smiley Ingram roads probably sometime between 2 and 6 a.m. Tuesday, Day said. The police dog set to be trained to sniff out drugs most likely could not have opened the kennel’s locking mechanism.

“We searched all day, talked to people, and haven’t found him,” Day said late Tuesday, adding another area resident reported previous thefts of two German Shepherds. “He’s not aggressive toward people at all. He would jump in the car with you if you found him on the side of the road.

“We’re hoping that’s what someone will do—just drop him off and we’ll get him.”

Day said the apparent theft has been reported to local law enforcement authorities. Anyone with information on Riki should call Cartersville-Bartow County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 770-606-8477 or sheriff's officials at 770-382-5050

Oy and a drug dog. Not a good thing. Hope they don't kill him.
I am so glad my truck crates can be locked with a key.

Please cross-post. I put it on Hex's page...with hesitation, but know that it would get exposure. I hope he is found safe. Very handsome sable.

I'm posting this to my Facebook and Twitter as well. Hopefully it will reach tons of people quickly and Riki is found safe and sound.

Any time I hear about a string of thefts like this happening, I can't help but wonder if this isn't some animal rights movement thing, "liberating" dogs "forced to work" for humans or some such nonsense.

This comment was made tonight on the link I posted...

There was a beautiful German Shepherd running down Hwy 113 near Zaxbys around 5:30pm this afternoon. No collar on. It was misty rain, not sure if he was as dark as this one. Definitely a German Shepherd though
