TWO puppies stolen yesterday at gunpoint – Pablo in Shaw and Bruno in Brightwood Park

Update part one: Pablo has been found!! Will update again when Bruno is hopefully found soon too.

Pablo’s owner reports: “Attached are some photos of Pablo, as well as the thief/thieves. They took him from my boyfriend at gunpoint while I was in CVS. They took his phone, but the “find my iPhone” showed it had been ditched, and the car was stolen so dead end there. He’s 11 weeks and we’ve had him less than 2 weeks. We intended on fostering but immediately fell in love and adopted on the spot. We got him from K9 Lifesavers and they’ve generously offered to donate the $5,000 reward.

We are so insanely in love with him even after such a short time. He loves attention and has certainly gotten no shortage of it on our walks.

Detectives say the robbers will likely try to sell him so we’re asking people to keep an eye out on Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. Also would love help spreading the word to area vets.
