EUGENE, Ore. – Nearly a dozen people spent Wednesday in Eugene looking for a stolen dog from Astoria.
The owner says her dog, a solid grey pit bull mix named Diesel, has been spotted up and down the Oregon coast with a transient man. She says Diesel was most recently reportedly seen in Eugene.
Police are on the case, searching various homeless camp sites in the area. The owner created a Facebook page, catching the attention of animal lovers around the Willamette Valley who are all helping look for the dog.
“He’s very distinguishing. He looks like a pit bull, but he has shorter legs and he is solid grey. So you can’t really miss him,” said Salem resident Marylynn Varner.
Diesel is still wearing his original collar. People searching for him are asking anyone who might see the dog to call the local police department.
