Working on the frontlines to combat the COVID-19 pandemic is tough. You do not only get physically exhausted working every day. You also face the emotional and psychological stress of seeing dying patients while putting yourself at high risk of getting infected.
However, sadly, an ER nurse from Southern California recently had added baggage to carry. On Saturday, at around 10 a.m. local time, someone got in the nurse’s property in Montgomery Avenue and stole the 11-week-old Malinois puppy.
#FindMax 💔 Another photo of Max – He’s still missing 😢
According to the Concord Police Department’s Facebook post, the dog’s name was Max. The authorities were able to get a hold of a surveillance video, showing the burglar taking Max away from his owner’s garage. The unidentified suspect was riding a gold and white bicycle.
The police department said that the suspect, who remains at large, was an adult male. He was wearing a dark sweatshirt with hood, blue jeans, dark baseball cap, dark shoes, as well as blue rubber gloves.
Concord Police Department posted additional photos on Monday, showing the suspect carrying Max under his arms while he was stealing the pup from the nurse’s home. The authorities hope that someone will recognize the culprit based on the images that they shared. They referred to him as a “dognapper.”
If anyone has any information regarding Max’s whereabouts, the police department said that they could reach out to the Concord Dispatch at the phone number (925)671-3333 and use case #20-4193 as reference. Hopefully, this information will lead to Max’s safe return to his owner’s loving arms.
Based on the San Francisco Chronicle report, Max’s owner works as an emergency room nurse that helps COVID-19 patients. Max’s presence in his parent’s life surely helps ease the nurse’s stress from work every time he comes home. So, hopefully, Max will soon find his way back to his family.
