The MSPCA reported a volunteer found “Pete” the Beagle early Friday afternoon on the Nevins Farm property in Methuen after he was stolen sometime Thursday. Five-year-old Pete was stolen from the organization’s adoption center minutes before his new adopter was to take him home. Officials believe the dog was dropped off Friday by whoever stole him Thursday, MSPCA spokesman Rob Halpin said. Mike Keiley, Nevins Farm director, said Pete is unharmed and appears healthy, While he’s trying to find out who dropped him off Friday, he is also contacting the adopters to make arrangements to pick up Pete and take him home.
