West Shore RCMP are investigating after a dog named ‘Lilly” was reportedly stolen from a fenced yard in Langford.

On Wednesday., West Shore RCMP received a call from a Langford resident at around 11 p.m., who said their dog, a Bluetick hound named Lilly, was stolen from their fenced yard.

According to police, thieves cut open a section of a fenced yard on the 1700-block of Falcon Heights Road and likely used treats to entice the large dog, Lilly, away from the home.

Investigators who attended the scene spotted the damaged fence and a discarded bag of food, which is believed to be the item used to lure out the dog.

Lilly is described as an 85 pound female Bluetick hound. She has a mostly black coat with bits of white and two white spots on the top of her head. She has a tattoo in one ear, and one of her ears has a slight cut in it. She has light brown paws and was wearing a pink collar at the time she was taken.
