Puppies are so adorable,unfortunately it can make them targets of unsrupulous thieves. Last month a 10 week old Boxer puppy went missing in the area of Foxfarm Road, Peterborough. Peterborough Lakefield police launched an investigation into the disappearance. A break in the case came when the owner noticed a suspicious ad on Kijiji.

Apparently a woman who found the Boxer pup,tried to cash in on her ill gotten gains, by placing a Kijiji to sell the dog. The dog was subsequently sold to an Ajax resident for $350 by the female and an accomplice. It was unfortunate the buyer didn’t see the missing pet ad before purchasing the pup.The original owner of the dog fortunately, learned of the transaction and contacted police.
