Local News

MURRAY (ABC4 News) UPDATE: The Humane Society of Utah said Cookie, the puppy, was found safe in Idaho. More information.


The Human Society of Utah says one of their puppies was stolen Thursday evening.

Security video shows a Hispanic woman in her mid-30s leaving the dog kennel area with what appears to be the puppy in her handbag and a white jacket over the top, HSU officials said.

They say the woman took Cookie, a 2-month-old black and tan Cairn Terrier, around 4:40 p.m.

The suspect appears to be around 5’6”, 220 to 250 pounds with long black hair and wearing a purple jacket. Two young boys, approximately 8 and 10 years old, were seen entering the facility with the woman.

“We’re extremely concerned about the safety of this puppy,” said Deann Shepherd, HSU representative. “It is quite disconcerting that somebody would take a puppy from a nonprofit animal shelter, especially with their two children present. We want to make sure that Cookie is safely returned as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Murray City Police Department Dispatch at 801-840-4000 regarding case #18C023602
