Washington County Sheriff’s Deputies on Monday located a dog that had been stolen nearly a year ago, and arrested the woman they say stole the dog.

Shortly after 1:30 PM on Monday, Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the possible location of a stolen Australian Shepard dog named Pippin in the 18400 block of SW Parrett Mountain Road in Sherwood. The dog was reported stolen from in front of a store in Beaverton on December 14 of 2014.

Police went to the home of Penelope Whipple, 64, and found that she matched the description of the person that stole the dog. Police saw a dog that matched the description of Pippin. 

Pippin was taken to the Banfield Pet Hospital where they confirmed the dog’s identity through a computer chip implanted in the dog. Pippin’s owner picked the dog up and was planning on surprising her children with a reunion with their newly-found canine companion.

Whipple was arrested and booked into Washington County Jail and charged with theft of a companion animal.
