Puppy pilfered by brazen bandit

Puppy pilfered by brazen bandit
Babe, a ten-week-old puppy, was stolen from All Pets Club in Wallingford, CT on January 17th.

Babe is a ten-week-old PekeChon, a cross between a Pekingese/Bichon Frise mix and a Maltese. An excessively adorable little creature, Babe would be a welcomed addition to any animal-loving home. Not only would this puppy be an affectionate companion but also is quite the investment: Babe is worth $1,000.

Babe was available for purchase at the All Pets Club, located on 1167 North Colony Road in Wallingford, Connecticut. According to a store employee, the puppy was stolen at 5:40 pm on January 17th. Video surveillance revealed that a man expressed interest in purchasing Babe and was playing with the puppy in a designated area. As the alleged perpetrator stealthily awaited his opportune moment, he escaped the store, seemingly unseen, right through the front door with Babe in hand.

The identity of the culprit who stole Babe is still unknown. If you have seen Babe or know anything about this case, please contact All Pets Club at (203) 265-1899.
