(KETK) Longview Tx — A puppy was stolen from a pet store just after ten Wednesday morning in Longview.
The dog's name is Spencer, a nine-week old Shih Tzu.
In security footage sent to KETK from Wet Pets N Critters, you can see a man picking up the dog and putting him in his coat, then casually walking around the store.
Store owner Laura Borens says the man then walked behind her employees, and out the door.
She says she wants to find dog soon, not because of the money, but due to the fact that when a dog is that young, it's dangerous to suddenly change the animal's environment.
She says Spencer is on a specific diet, and if he is not fed the right kind of puppy food, it could make the dog sick, along with not getting his proper shots.
If you have seen this dog, or recognize the man in the video, you are encouraged to call Longview Police right away
