SPOKANE, Wash. -

A Spokane pet store is hoping that you know something about two people who stole a min-pin/Jack Russell terrier mix puppy Wednesday afternoon.

Northwest Seed and Pet posted surveillance video on their Facebook page that showed a woman in their North Division store walking away from the area where the puppies were kept, looking like she was putting the dog in her purse. As she walked, the video showed something fall out. Employees say it was a dog toy that she apparently looked to be stealing as well. They also say that while this was happening, a man who appeared to be involved with the woman was talking to an employee about a completely different animal at the store.

They’ve since moved the puppies to a locked crate to protect them.

“Any theft is awful, it's even worse with little animals,” says Bob Mauk, owner of Northwest Seed and Pet. “I always wonder how much care someone who is willing to steal an animal going to care for it. That’s the biggest deal. How well is this little puppy going to get cared for?”

Meanwhile, they hope that if anyone knows who did this or has information will come forward.

You can call Crime Check at 509-456-2233. The report number is 2017-20227078.
