Lukas, the pug is missing, and is believed to have been stolen. Vancouver Police need the public`s help to reunite him with his devastated owners.

After a walk to the park around 6:30 p.m. August 25th, Lukas was left tied up in front of a small grocery story near Terminal and Main Street while his owner went inside to shop. When the owner came back less than a minute later, Lukas was gone.

A bystander commented that a man had come along and untied the dog, picked him up and darted away through a courtyard walkway nearby. The concerned owner searched for nearly 2 hours but could not find Lukas or the man who allegedly took him.

Police were called and a search of the area failed to find the pug or the man.

The suspect is described as a white male with long blonde hair, tanned skin and he was wearing a navy blue jacket and black sweat pants.

Lukas is a black pug and he will have a blue dog tag numbered A1432 and a micro-chip in his back.

Anyone with information is asked to call Vancouver Police.
