DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - This 3-month-old Chihuahua Betty was stolen from her kennel at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton Tuesday just hours after surgery so she needs her medicine.
The puppy only weighs about two and half pounds.
"She was so young and small that she could fit in the palm of my hand. So, she is a dog that would be easy to tuck into a shirt, into a purse and conceal fairly easily," says Humane Society of Greater Dayton President and CEO Brian Weltge.
Betty was in a foster home and going to be adopted by that family. Weltge says the little girl in that family is very upset.
The puppy does have a microchip, the microchip number 982000199049225.
And they need your help.
"We would like the public to keep their eyes and ears open for anyone who is trying to sell or anyone who has received a dog of this description," explains Weltge.
The dog could be worth a lot of money, so the person who stole Betty could face felony charges.
A reward is being offered.
If you have any information on Betty, call 268-PETS.
