PITTSTON – A dog recovering after being found neglected and abandoned on Davis Alley in Pittston earlier this month has been visited by his future employers – the agents tasked with saving the puppy.
The dog picks up at Maxwell’s House, a “pet” for dogs and cats located on Tunnel Street in Pittston.
“The Pittston Town Police Department made a special visit today to a special puppy (Nova) at Maxwell’s house,” the post read.
The department reported that Nova was feeling “much better” and that Maxwell’s House would continue to nurse and treat Nova until the puppy was ready to go to work – as a therapy dog for the police department.
“Nova has met a part of her new extended family,” the post said.
Screenshots taken from a CCTV camera were uploaded to the ministry’s Facebook page on June 14. The ministry advised citizens to be on the lookout for a light-colored Ford Escape, which is said to be a 2008-2012 model with a sunroof and front license plate holder.
The vehicle was last seen heading east on Butler Street towards Fulton Street, police said.
No arrests have yet been made in this incident.
