!! Please BEWARE of these kidnapped dogs!! Three weeks ago, on May 12, 2022, Dr. Kim Lark being a friend of a friend, a nightmare scenario. Despite their vigilant efforts to protect her, all 3 of her dogs — all highly skilled at search and rescue, one of them VERY pregnant — were kidnapped by her ex in Carlsbad, New Mexico. Police believe the suspect is armed and dangerous. Look for the full backstory, media coverage of the crime (including by a investigative producer at NBC News/Dateline) and latest updates at SaveKimsDogs.com. dr Lark offers a $50,000 reward for the safe return of the 3 dogs and the litter of puppies. Please keep an eye out for these dogs and the suspect. They could be anywhere by now. #savekimsdogs

how can you help
- Please share information about these kidnapped dogs on all your social media feeds at least once a week. Younger friends, please include TikTok too.
- Download and print a PDF version of the flyer about kidnapped dogs. If possible, post at gas stations, rest stops, truck stops, restaurants, campgrounds, pet stores, etc.
- Also, please keep an eye on CraigsList and other places where people might have a litter of border collie puppies for sale and report any possible matches to the team that Dr. Lark Helps – SaveKimsDogs@gmail.com.
Kidnapped Dogs #1 – Female Dutch Shepherd named Crime
Kidnapped Dogs #2 – Border Collie dog named Zero
Zero was VERY pregnant at the time of the crime, due literally any day.
Assuming she delivered them safely after the kidnapping, everyone hopes she’s with the litter and nursing the puppies.
Kidnapped Dogs #3 – Female border collie named Storm
Kidnapped Dogs #4-?? – Border collie puppies
Assuming Zero had safely delivered her litter during the escape, the border collie puppies would now be around 2 weeks old (June 2, 2022). They will be ~8 weeks old in mid-July 2022.
The suspect also broke into Dr. Lark’s house, taking things including perhaps pedigree information about the abducted dogs and litter so the puppies could come with “papers.”
Let’s not assume that the suspect and any accomplices (unknowingly or not) wait to sell the puppies until they are old enough to legally transfer ownership – which takes anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks depending on the state.
Be on the lookout for suspicious litters now and throughout the summer.
