Skippy the dog was an ambassador for the Marin Humane Society. Just weeks after his death, a bronze statue donated in Skippy’s honor has gone missing.
Before his death on July 17th, the Jack Russell terrier worked as a therapy dog for the humane society. Tom and Marianne O’Connell donated the statue to honor Skippy’s work.
According to the humane society, the statue was stolen from the society’s dog park in Novato last weekend.
“We’re not sure, there are some theories,” said Carrie Harrington of the humane society. “The statue was made out of bronze, so there are some theories that perhaps somebody was looking to make some money off of it.” (more)
