Missing dog found dead

A missing dog reported stolen from a vehicle at the Whychus Canyon Preserve Trailhead earlier this month has been found dead a few miles from where she went missing. According to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, the cause of death does not appear to be suspicious in nature, and is likely due to the elements.

On May 17, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a report of a K-9 stolen from the trailhead.

The dog owner had parked their vehicle at the Whychus Canyon Preserve Trailhead in the shade. While walking two other dogs the dog owner had secured their eight-month-old Belgian Malinois named Grisha in a crate inside their vehicle. Grisha was inside a crate with water accessible, and the windows lowered to allow air flow. Upon returning to their vehicle, the dog owner saw that someone had opened their vehicle and removed the dog.

DCSO and the owners initiated a search and alerted the community through social media.
