kelpie has been fatally stabbed in the front yard of his regional Victorian home.

An unknown hoodie-wearing man got out of a dark blue Subaru Forester which stopped outside the Tunnel Gap Road home in Glen Creek on November 11 at 6pm.

He stabbed the dog several times before leaving in the car, which has black mag wheels, roof racks and a loud sports exhaust.

“Quite a terrible attack on a dog… a kelpie” a police spokesman told 3AW on Wednesday.

Police want to speak to anyone with information about the thin-build man or the car.
