Miami-Dade Animal Services is seeking the public’s help in identifying two people who stole a purebred Belgian Malinois shepherd dog from a county animal shelter on Tuesday.
The dog, named Django, is an intact 1-year-old male, according to a news release from Animal Services.
Belgian Malinois dogs look much like German Shepherds, but are smaller and more agile. They’re often used as police dogs, and purebreds can sell for thousands of dollars.
Surveillance footage from the animal shelter shows a man and a woman removing Django from his pen around 5 p.m. and leaving through a restricted access exit.
Animal Services has urged anyone with information to call the Animal Services Investigations Unit at 305-418-7172.
