SCOTTS VALLEY — A Great Dane show dog, valued at $27,000, was reported stolen from a recreational vehicle outside Scotts Valley on Tuesday.
A black-and-white, 175-pound canine named Knight was taken from the 2400 block of El Rancho Drive, said Deputy April Skalland.
The dog was taken between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m., Skalland said. Nothing else was taken during the burglary.
Knight is 18 months old and about 3 feet tall. He is mostly black with white markings on his face, neck and legs. Knight is not neutered.
The dog was not wearing a collar but is microchipped for identification.
Knight had been shipped here from Australia and is registered with the American Kennel Club.
