Toronto woman says ser­vice dog who helps her with de­pres­sion and PTSD was stolen

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

TORONTO — Po­lice in Toronto are look­ing for a stolen dog that helps its owner cope with her PTSD and de­pres­sion. Ashley-Vic­to­ria Martineau, 28, left her teacup chi­huahua Princess tied to a rail­ing in front of a McDon­ald’s (at Bloor Street and Oss­ing­ton Av­enue) when she stopped in to the fast-food chain at about 2 a.m. on Sun­day. She says she thought she would be in and out quickly, and that she’s had trou­ble try­ing to bring her dog into restau­rants in the past. When she came back out­side af­ter about 10 min­utes, her dog was gone. Martineau says she has reg­is­tered Princess as a ser­vice an­i­mal, and that she re­lies on the six-year-old res­cue dog.

Det. Kristy Smith says po­lice have iden­ti­fied sev­eral per­sons of in­ter­est, and that they will be re­view­ing se­cu­rity cam­era footage.
