7 Week Old Puppy Stolen From Shelter On Eastern Shore

An animal rescue group on the Eastern Shore said it needs help finding a couple who it said stole a 7-week-old puppy from its shelter on Tuesday afternoon.

Susan Beall of the Animal Resource Foundation said a couple walked into their adoption center along Piney Narrows Road in Chester around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to look at some puppies and quickly left, taking a little miniature pinscher/Chihuahua-mix named Mango.

Beall said workers didn't realize the pup had been taken until after the couple drove away.

She said Mango is only 7 weeks old and hasn't yet fully been weaned from his mother. He only weighs about 2 pounds.

Beall said they're looking for the man and woman, who were described as in their 20s. She said the man was about 6 feet tall with dark hair and a strong body. She said his left arm was covered in tattoos.

Anyone with information on the theft or the puppy's whereabouts is urged to call 410-643-8700 or email Beall said a $500 reward is being offered.
