Man’s best friend stolen with truck

By medicinehatnews on August 23, 2017.

Nine-month-old pup, Belle, was stolen alongside a truck on Tuesday.

Brad Kuich of Kelowna had his car stolen in Medicine Hat Tuesday, but he lost something he regards as much more valuable: His nine-month-old pup, Belle, a black and white border collie.

Kuich, who owns land in the Oyen area and was in southern Alberta for business reasons, stopped at the Medicine Hat Mall to get a new phone but didn’t realize he had left a second set of keys to his car on the console. He said he realized his error about 20 minutes and rushed out to the parking lot, only to find his car — and Belle — missing.

“The dog means everything to me,” said Kuich.

His insurance company was helping him get a rental vehicle and a report was filed to the Medicine Hat Police Service, who hadn’t located the vehicle by press time Wednesday.

Kuich said Belle has been spayed and has a microchip between her shoulder blades.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of Belle, or the vehicle — a 2013 burgundy Chevy Silverado with B.C. plate — should contact the Medicine Hat police at 403-529-8481.
