A Glen Rock couple are seeking the whereabouts of their beloved dog, whom they suspect was snatched from their property around midnight on Christmas Eve.
Edina, a frail and deaf dachshund-Papillon mix, has never in her 15 years been known to wander off, according to the owners. Paula Gilligan said her husband let the dog out at about 1 a.m. to go to the bathroom in the yard of their Fairview Road home. She hasn't been seen since.
"I believe she was taken," Paula said. "We were finishing up preparations for Christmas morning and when he went to get her she was gone. It's a very bizarre situation .... she is old and never wandered off."
The family – which searched the area for hours but came up empty-handed – is prepared to offer a reward for information leading to the return of Edina.
Anyone with information can reach out to Paula Gilligan at 917-414-9928.
