Dog gone, woman calls cops

SALEM — A triangle involving a woman, a man and a Pomeranian dog brought police to Abbott Street yesterday afternoon.

The woman complained that the man, described as a friend she’s known for six months but had not dated, had offered to take her dog for a walk one week ago. He didn’t come back but “called to inform her that he had to go home and had the dog with him,” according to the log. “He asked if he could keep the dog overnight and return it the next day. She agreed.”

Yet, he failed to produce the dog the following day. Moreover, she continued to call, only to have him promise to return the Pomeranian and never follow through on his promise. Finally, on Wednesday, he showed up, but empty-handed. He wanted her to sell him the dog and even gave her a homemade bill of sale. The woman refused his offer.

“She wants the dog back,” police noted.

Police are investigating, but as of yesterday, they hadn’t been able to contact the man or the dog.
