A manhunt has been launched after a dog was stolen from the city centre.
The Glasgow Times reported on Wednesday that a Possilpark man was left devastated after his “best pal” Charlie was taken from outside a shop on Hope Street last Saturday around 7.30pm.
Now, Police Scotland has released the description of a man who they believe was involved.
He is described as being male, around 25-30-years-old, around 5ft 11in, of slim build, with short brown hair. He was wearing a grey Nike tracksuit and black trainers.
Officers are asking anyone who has seen the man to get in touch.
Detective constable Kimberley Douglas said: “The theft of the dog has caused considerable distress to the owners.
“Our enquiries are ongoing and I am appealing for anyone with any information which may assist us, who hasn’t already spoken to police to get in touch.
“The area was busy at the time and I would also ask anyone who was in the area and noticed anything suspicious to contact us.”
Charlie, a seven-year-old black labrador, is very friendly, according to his owner, Stevie Douglas.
He added: “I’m destroyed, I’m in bits, he was my best pal.
“I’m worried sick that I will never get him back but I’m even more worried whoever has him is maltreating him.”
