The Vermont State Police in Rutland are seeking the public’s help in locating a stolen dog.

On Thursday, June 16 the Rutland County Humane Society reported the theft of a dog from one of its outside kennels.

According to police, three people –a white female, a white male and an African-American male — arrived at the humane society in a black 4-door passenger car described as a Volkswagen Passat.

Two of the people used the restroom while the third waited outside. The staff told police that they had heard the subjects being loud and obnoxious, then learned that they had allegedly removed the dog and left.

The dog is described as a 1-year-old terrier mix and answers to the name  Fred. The VW Passat is believed to be displaying an out-of-state plate, possibly Maine.
