Three "very valuable," purebred German shepherds were reported stolen from Gunbil German Shepherds in Larkspur, according to a sheriff's office news release. It is believed the dogs were taken at some point between 10 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.
A homeowner in Palmer Lake located one of the dogs on June 1 inside their garage. The homeowner contacted the Palmer Lake Police Department, and the dog was taken back to the kennel.
A second dog was recovered the morning of June 5 after being found in close proximity to the kennel tethered to a fence. That dog was also returned to the kennel.
The third and final dog was found the morning of June 10 in an area near Palmer Divide. No further information is available on his recovery. He was returned to the kennel as well.
According to the sheriff's office, there currently are no suspects in the theft, but police are continuing their investigation. Because of the value of the dogs, whoever took them from the kennel could be facing felony theft charges.
Anyone knowing any information on the disappearance of the dogs is asked to please call the DCSO tip line at 303-660-7579. The sheriff's office is thankful to the public for numerous tips that aided in the recovery of the three dogs.
