Lost Coquitlam dog 'Kali' reunited with owner after five-day search

The Husky Cross — and the Subaru she was stolen in — was found about one block north from where the 11-year-old dog was taken.

Kali is back home.

Coquitlam RCMP confirms the 11-year-old Husky Cross was found last night (Sept. 1) and reunited with her owner after a five-day search.

According to Mounties, it received word from Metro Vancouver Transit Police around 9:30 p.m. the white Subaru Forester that Kali was taken in was found on 500-block Emerson Street in the Burquitlam neighbourhood.

This is not too far from where she was originally stolen on 500-block Clarke Road on Aug. 26 around 2 p.m.

Through the combined efforts of the public, Transit Police and the Coquitlam RCMP, we were able to find the Subaru and reunite Kali with her owner, explains spokesperson Const. Deanna Law.

The family and all officers involved are happy that Kali is now safe at home and doing very well. Stories like this put a smile on everyone’s face.

According to social media posts, Kali was found still inside the vehicle in an underground parking lot.

The owner has since responded on social media to thank the public for their efforts to find Kali and adds she'll be checked at a vet today (Sept. 2).

The news has since brought delight to the greater Coquitlam community, including Mayor Richard Stewart.

"I know many of us have been keeping our eyes open for the stolen Subaru that Kali was in, and for the sweet big-eared dog. Thank you all for the shares, the posts, the searches."
