SOUTH SURREY â€” Cindy Paine is toying with the idea of increasing a reward amount to $2,000, after little to no information has come forth since the disappearance of her dog Sarah on July 31.
"I might have to do that, to really let people know I’m serious. I really miss my dog and I know she misses me too," Paine tearfully said.
Sarah was adopted a year ago, roughly two months after Paine had put down her border collie.
"It really was love at first sight. We just clicked. She’s my glue."
Unfortunately, while Paine was at work, Sarah escaped by digging her way under the fence.
Those living around the Cranley Drive mobile home park spotted the pooch throughout the week, but no one was successful in catching her.
"She had done this before, but our neighbours were able to get her back in. I guess this time, she got freaked out and realized she didn’t know where she was and kept on going."
A witness came forward Aug. 10, stating he had seen the dog with a couple and two children in a Grandview Corners parking lot.
The pair had told the witness they were planning to take Sarah to the SPCA, but no dog of that description was ever turned in.
"I think she was stolen. They probably took her home, fell in love and did the wrong thing," Paine added.
The canine lover said she will continue putting up posters while waiting for that phone to ring.
"I just want her home." People are asked to call 604-805-4535 if they know anything about Sarah’s whereabouts. The dog does have an ear tattoo with Paine’s information.
