TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An alarming amount of dogs have gone missing in west Toledo within the past few weeks. Residents in that area now say they have seen a suspicious truck in their neighborhoods with men who are eyeing pit bulls and asking questions about the dogs.

Jean Keating is the executive director of the Lucas County Pit Crew. She says she is aware dogs are missing and that it worries her.

"Now in the last month or two here it's getting scary where lots of dogs are suddenly coming up missing, never seen again," said Keating.

Keating says the pit crew has seen an increase in dogs being shot and abused as well. She says the missing dogs are mostly from west Toledo and that is also where the suspicious trucks have appeared.

"People are seeing an individual sometimes. They're saying its two individuals looking into people's yards, cruising slowly down the street asking people about other people's dogs," said Keating.

One resident says she witnessed the men in a maroon Chevy truck sitting on the street for ten minutes while watching her two pit bulls. That resident now worries for their safety.

Keating fears the dogs are being used in cruelty cases or worse. If you have any information about these missing pets visit www.facebook.com/groups/lostandfoundpets2
