Smith County, TX (KETK) — A puppy was stolen from the Pets Fur People shelter in Smith County on Friday.
Gayle Helms with Pets Fur People, formerly the Humane Society of Smith County, tells KETK that the puppy was taken just before 5:00 pm on Friday.
Employees noticed a black 4-door Mitsubishi driving into the compound. They say that while it is unusual to have a vehicle so close, its not unheard of, so they did not approach the vehicle.
They noticed a young hispanic couple get out of the car and walk around the complex. The man and woman were in their 20s or 30s. The man is approximately 5'9'', and was wearing a red hoodie. The woman is approx. 5'5'', with long black hair. She was wearing a white shirt at the time of the theft.
The pup, “Woodrow”, is a 3 month old Shepherd mix. He had already been adopted, but was being held at the shelter for a week before being picked up by his new family.
They are offering a reward of $500 for information regarding the pup's whereabouts.
If you have tips, please contact Pets Fur People at (903) 597-2471 or email at Shelter@PetsFurPeople.org.
Helms tells KETK, Woodrow's adopted famiy was heartbroken after hearing of the incident.
