Emeryville PD asking for help in search for Stolen French Bulldog

1 min read

The Emeryville PD is asking for help from members of the public who may have seen or know the whereabouts of a stolen French Bulldog. “Max” was reportedly given to a family at the Emeryville Public Market the weekend of February 18th-20th. Max’s owner Patric Brown made a trip to the Public Market on Friday to post some flyers to hopefully draw some attention to his plight to recover his companion. “It’s just him and I,” noted Brown pausing to regain his composure. “He’s so important for an old guy like me.”

Max was in his crate in Brown’s car when it was stolen from a hotel parking lot in Seaside near Monterey where Brown worked. The thief was later apprehended and vehicle recovered in Benicia, but Max was not. The thief, identified as 28-year-old Cory Kennett of Sacramento, claims to have “given” Max to a family while stopping at the Public Market. The family was described as a man with four kids, two were estimated to be teenagers. Brown’s stolen vehicle was a 2001 Grey Mercedes-Benz.

Patric Brown, here in front of the Public Market where Max was reportedly given to a family, is hopeful someone saw something that will return him home.

Max is a 1.5-year-old neutered male French Bulldog with a brindle coat and white “arrow” shaped patch on his chest and weighs about 24 pounds. He is not micro-chipped and did not have his collar on at the time of the theft. Like many “Frenchies”, Max requires a special diet and allergy medications.

Anyone with information on Max’s whereabouts is asked to contact either the Benicia Police Department at (707) 745-3411, Emeryville Animal Control Officer Monica Hueston at (510) 420-3006 or to call Patric directly at (831) 320-5000. “I’ve had Max since he was two months old and he’s very dear to me,” Brown added in the below post on the Benicia Police Department Facebook page.
