Police search for couple who stole bulldog puppies from North Dallas pet store


Dallas Police are looking for two people who stole bulldog puppies from a North Dallas pet store on Christmas Eve.

Police said on Monday the couple, who drove a white Dodge Challenger, broke into Petland at the 11900 block of Preston Road near Forest Lane at around 1:15 a.m.

Surveillance footage shows one of the two people smashing through a glass door with what appears to be bolt cutters. The couple, carrying bags, then go to the back of the store and grab several puppies out of the kennel.

Anyone with information on the case can contact Detective Sara Sheerin at 214-670-7160 or [email protected] and refer to Case # 228988-2020.

North Dallas Petland has been the scene of a number of crimes in recent years:

  • A man asked to see a Malti-Tzu puppy in April 2017, then walked out of the store with the dog.
  • A couple used a stolen identity to apply for a credit card and purchase a French Bulldog for $ 6,666 in August 2016.
  • A man walked out of the store with a Siberian husky puppy in July 2015; the police returned the dog the next day.
  • Eight puppies with a total value of $ 12,000 were stolen in an early morning break-in in December 2012.
  • A woman left the store with a $ 1,700 parrot on her shoulder in September 2012; a man who later bought the parrot returned it after learning that it had been stolen.
