DES MOINES, Iowa - A Sioux City councilman's dog that has been deemed vicious and could be euthanized is missing from an animal shelter.
Police say someone broke into the shelter Sunday afternoon and stole Jake, a 3-year-old yellow Labrador retriever, from an outdoor kennel. No other animals were taken.
Lt. Mark Kirkpatrick says there are no suspects as of Monday and the dog hasn't been found.
Jake belongs to Councilman Aaron Rochester, who pushed last year for pit bull terriers to be banned from the city, saying they were too dangerous.Jake was deemed vicious this summer after police say he bit a man June 27.
Rochester says he didn't take Jake.
He says his dog has been front-page news and he's not shocked that someone took him.

Oh, for the love of doG, who is scripting this stinker?
It's not a conflict of interest if it isn't technically my dog
