SCHERTZ – UPDATE:
The Schertz Police Department said the owners of the Great Danes have since picked up the dogs hours after KSAT.com shared the story.
"We just replaced our fence and hadn’t had the time to get a lock for the gate. They used teamwork and one jumped on the latch to open the gate. The other one jumped on the gate door to open it and that’s how they got out," the owner said in the comments section of the Facebook post.
If you live in the Schertz area and return home to find that two of your beloved Great Danes are gone, no need to worry, because the Schertz Police Department has your back.
On Tuesday, SPD shared on its Facebook page that several of its officers, with the assistance of Schertz Animal Services, were able to wrangle up two Great Danes near a busy intersection.
The pups were found in the area of Schertz Parkway and Wiederstein Road.
The two dogs, described by SPD as “the size of small horses,” were transported to Animal Control, where they’re currently being housed.
The SPD said in the Facebook post that if residents recognize the dogs to call 210-619-1550 to arrange pickup for the Great Danes.
SPD also shared that Tuesday morning’s rescue mission serves as a good reminder for the community to check all enclosures for pets to prevent future great escapes.
