Puppy stolen at gunpoint

Puppy stolen at gunpoint from owner walking in D.C.

Last weekend, a man walking his pit bull puppy was approached by two individuals in a car who asked if they could buy his pup. As reported by Fox 5 News, when the man said no, and continued walking, one of the people in the car pulled out a gun and said “it’s our dog now.”

The disturbing situation happened on the 800 block of Division Avenue, Northeast, on Saturday afternoon. The suspects drove away with the man’s four-month-old red nose pit bull, L.A.

The stolen puppy was wearing a blue collar with the name L.A. on it – the dog also had a rabies vaccination tag. The suspects were driving a burgundy 2017 Kia Forte. Anyone with information about this crime, or the whereabouts of the stolen puppy, is asked to call the police at 202-727-9099.

    Sadly the assholes who stole this puppy are probably involved in a dog fighting ring and want him as a bait dog. If the thieves can be found and the puppy rescued before he is killed, they should go directly to jail for many many years. Put them in with a bunch of guys who can fight them every day for as long as they are incarcerated. Nothing that can happen to these guys will ever be enough for what they have done. Rot in hell you sorry bastards!
