I can’t believe that it’s been 9 long days since Monty was stolen. Who would do such a thing?
Woofables is a dog treat bakery located in Coralville, Iowa. The owners, Laura and Alex, have a passion for pets- especially their dogs! Monty was their newest addition- a mix of Pug, Chihuahua and Beagle and only three months old! He would go to work with his owners and help greet customers in the dog friendly store- which is where he was stolen.
On Saturday, March 10, 2012, a rush of traffic kept the owners busy helping customers. Even so, they kept an eye on Monty as customers would want to pet him and talk to him. One couple in particular was spending quite a bit of time with him, petting him and even holding him.
After ringing up the customers, they noticed that Monty wasn’t in sight. In panic, they ran around the store looking for him. They initially thought that he must have slipped out the door somehow. But then soon realized that this was no accident. He was intentionally removed from his owners and the store!
Who would do such a thing? Some people consider their dogs their family members, even as a child of their own. This is serious!
This is what we know: the two people who took him are both white, one is male and the other is female. The male is described as standing between 5’8″ and 5’10” and weighing about 170 pounds. The female is said to stand at about 5’3″-5’4″ and weighing 130 pounds. That may not be a lot to go on but once you take a look at Monty’s picture, you won’t forget his face.
There is an area of interest in Coralville in the neighborhood of 10th Street and 20th Avenue. A credible witness saw a woman walking a puppy who looked like Monty. That’s not the only lead out there and the police are helping with the investigation. There’s been a huge outpouring of support from the community and Woofable’s shoppers. They are all determined to find Monty and bring him home where he belongs. They are giving a $100 reward for his safe return.
If you have any information on Monty, please contact Woofables at 319.351.9663 or the Coralville Police at 319.248.1800. You can even email me at firstname.lastname@example.org- I’m one of many who are helping to crack this couple down and find Monty.
Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide! Sharing this story is crucial to finding him so please, we ask that you share this with your network! -Juli
