Denver teacher’s dog found safe after going missing during burglary

DENVER — A teacher’s dog was found safe Monday after missing since Friday when her home was burglarized.

Bethany Goodman, a ninth-grade counselor at East High School, had her home broken into on Friday while she was taking part in the teachers’ rally at the state Capitol.

Her dog, Ollie, a 2-year-old rescue dog, went missing after the break-in, but he was found hiding in a tile warehouse a few miles from the home on Monday morning.

“Thank you, to the wonderful people at Denver Daltile Stone for calling me immediately once they found him,” Goodman wrote. “They didn’t want a dime even though a $500 reward was offered to anyone who found him or turned him in.

“I’m so relieved that my little Ollie Bear is finally safe at home.”

The suspects in the burglary have not been arrested, but the Denver Police Department said it was able to pull fingerprints and a shoe imprint from the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
