According to Multnomah County authorities, animal Control apprehended the dog responsible for the April mauling of a Portland chef on Saturday morning. The pit bull terrier mix named Bubbie and his owner Jessie Miller were found in Southeast Portland.
Using an existing warrant, the officer notified Portland police, who responded to assist Multnomah County Animal Services in impounding Bubbie. Cheryl Wakerhauser, an owner of Pix Patisserie, was assaulted by Bubbie in April.
After the event at Miller’s mother’s home, the dog was meant to be confined for ten days, but Miller allegedly kidnapped the dog. A Multnomah County spokesperson said they had spoken to Miller once since the incident but could not hold him or the dog due to a lack of warrants.
This Monday, May 08, Multnomah County acquired a warrant that authorized the impoundment of Bubbie by Animal Services and the police. Animal Services patrols have also started looking for Bubbie in specific locations.
