On Sunday August 7th at approximately 01.30 a.m. a Philipsburg Police patrol was sent to a home on Christiansted drive in Dutch Quarter to give assistance to the owner of that home who was prevented from entering her home by a large German Sheppard.
This dog was not accompanied by anyone nor did it have a dog collar. The dog would become aggressive and not let anyone into the home. On the arrival of the patrol the dog had already left the home in question and was wandering on the street. A search to locate the owners of this was done by the officers however the owners were not found. The officers succeeded in capturing the dog and the dog is now impounded at the Philipsburg Police Station. The police department is asking the owner of this dog to please come forward to collect this animal and when doing to also bring along proof of ownership.
