MIAMI – A distressed dog owner is searching for their puppy after a woman allegedly stole their puppy in plain sight.
According to a post from Miami-based media company Only in Dade, while the owner of a puppy was paying at the front desk of a veterinarian clinic in Miami, a woman took advantage of the situation and stole their puppy.
In surveillance footage taken from the veterinarian office, Best Care Animal Clinic on Southwest 8th Street, you can see the blonde woman sitting near the dog carrier that the puppy was inside of. That is when she quickly unzips the bag, grabs the small puppy, and seems to quickly sneak it up under her T-shirt. Then, she quickly darts out of the clinic.
Watch the entire video below:
Although there was initially a $1,000 reward for any information leading to her or the puppy’s whereabouts, comments on the post state that the reward has since been increased upwards to $5,000.
Police have yet to comment.
If you recognize the woman in the video, please call police.
