Woman Arrested For Stealing Puppy From Pet Store

A Louisville woman faces charges after police say she used a child to help her steal a puppy from a pet store.

Police say the woman went to the store last week, picked up a Boston terrier puppy and stuffed it in her shirt. She then concealed it by carrying a small child in her arms.

The crime was all caught on tape.

The woman was arrested after she returned to the store, trying to talk her way out of any legal action.

The puppy is back at the store, but workers say it is now sick.

    @Everythings about money Location: Morehead You try to sound knowledgeable about animals sold at stores, yet you cant figure out how a puppy gets sick? EVer heard of leaving a dog in a car or outside in a fence or chain in the cold? Or how about parvo that lives in the ground or other dogs she had. She probally stole it for her kid or to sell and is most likely a habitual theif. After all who steals a puppy?

    She shouldn't of took the puppy the way she did, but it would have been better off out of the store away from the true criminals (puppy mills, breeders in it for the money) Why is the pup sick, if it had it's shots and it's not inbreed then what could she have doneto make it sick!?! Good thing no one bought this pup from you, and I hope the poor souls that do buy from you get a health guarantee on their pup.

    Puppies (kittens too) weren't made to be sold out of stores. If the woman can provide the puppy a good home, the store should freely give the little critter to her and forget the charges. It's way past time we wonderful Americans start looking out for critters, especially dogs and cats!!
