MISSING - Amigo

Amigo still missing after 10 days

Colleena Wardell is still asking the public for their help in finding her dog Amigo, who she believes was stolen from Three Mile Bend.

Ten days ago Wardell’s sister with her own two dogs was walking Amigo at Three Mile Bend when a man took an interest in Amigo.

The man was driving a grey Honda Civic. Wardell’s sister turned away for a minute and discovered Amigo and the man were gone.

Wardell has since put posters up all around town in busy shopping centres, veterinary clinics, kennels, at Three Mile Bend and anywhere a store or business owner will allow.

“I’m still putting out new posters and posting on facebook and checking PetLynx every day whether it’s in Calgary or Edmonton,” said Wardell.

Amigo has bad hips and is on medication but this would be an unknown fact to anyone who found the overly friendly large black dog.

He is described as having one white patch under his chin and one on his chest. Otherwise, he is an all black, medium to longhaired dog that looks like a lab/Newfoundlander cross.

“It’s been a huge void that nobody can imagine. There are things around my house that remind me of him and I just can’t put them away,” said Wardell.

Wardell said she has basically exhausted all avenues at this point trying to find her dog.

She was unable to file a report with the RCMP as the dog could not be proven stolen, though she did try.

The SPCA, Animal Services, and other local vets and kennels have all of Amigo’s information in case he is brought to them or spotted in town.

Wardell said it is hard to believe that anybody would ever take a dog from Three Mile Bend.

“When I go to the park I always pet other dogs,” said Wardell.

She said Amigo does come when he is called by name and that is he a very friendly dog and would likely greet anyone who knew him by name.

“I’ve done everything possible at this point. I just don’t know,” said Wardell.

Colleena can be contacted at 403-505-7010 with any information regarding Amigo.
