Moxxii’s owner, Angela Lavergn a member off the Search and Rescue Dog Association of Victoria (SARDAV) took to Facebook after discovering their booth at the event had been rummaged through.
“Came in to open the booth today [Sunday] at Petapalooza to find that our booth had been gone thru. Moxxii’s harness was taken,” Lavergn wrote on her Facebook post.
“This is her working harness. Some of the badges on her vest can not be replaced – from soldiers that went overseas,” she added.

“If you see this on Craigslist – Usedvic – VarageSale please get it.”
