Plymouth Twp. Police Searching for Puppy Thief

An unidentified white female accompanied by a small child was caught on camera stealing a puppy from Playful Pets in Conshohocken.

The is searching for a woman who was caught on video stealing a two-month old puppy from Playful Pets in Conshohocken on Wednesday.

According to employees, a white, middle-aged blond female approximately 5'3" in height entered the store at 115 Ridge Pike near shortly after 3 p.m. on Wednesday in the company of another female and two small children. The women spent some time playing with the puppies while their children wandered the store.

After checking to see if anyone is watching, the woman can be seen on tape lifting "Pipsqueak," a two-month old, 3-pound black and tan Dachsund out of his bin and placing him in her purse. The child with the woman, approximately 4-years old, witnessed the woman placing the dog in her purse. The woman then took the child by the hand and exited the store.

Store owner Sam Mintz and his employees are anxious for Pipsqueak to be returned and are fearful for his safety.

"Any new puppy can go with stress and that can bring its health down," said employee Lisa Terio. "It could even go into sugar shock... They need to bring the puppy back."

You can see the theft and get a good look at the suspect in the video above. Anyone who knows this woman, or has any information about the whereabouts of the puppy, should contact Plymouth Township Police at 610-279-1901.

Yes, It is a waste of my time and energy dealing with them. Its really sad in this day and age that there are people that still don't get it. But I won't stop because someone has to speak for those that can't speak for themselves. These are the kinds of people you deal with who are involved with puppy mills and pet shops. There not the sharpest tool in the shed. Just check out there website; its like an add for used cars "LET's MAKE A DEAL" "ONLY *899", etc It;s just pathetic. They don't even know what there talking about ; especially about mixed breeds. They just want to push them. Wow,

I should have READ your negative reviews before going there and losing over one thousand dollars and the dog. with your intimidation and careless manner for the puppies or clients. YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT THE MONEY. MY STORY: im out over a grand, plus they have the puppy. SOLD ME A PUPPY WITH A BROKEN LEG, REFUSED REFUND AND HAS PUPPY. BROUGHT PUPPY BACK IN 2 .5 HOURS SAME DAY!! EXTREMLY RUDE, Even cursed- Clearly the reason they didnt alow me to put her on the floor to run around there, was they were aware she had a broken leg, or some leg issue. I was told I couldnt place her on the floor due to their house dog who roamed freely and was aggressive. SO HEART BREAKING. As soon as I got home and set her down I saw the issue, called a friend who is a retired 20+ year dog trainer and experienced with vets for the United States Army, he stayed with me an hour at my house or so, and in the end we decided to sadly take her back and get my $1,029.99 back. (MGR BETH ANN) REFUSED to give me my money back,. I heard the young girl and the other woman, whispered A CUSTOMER DROPPED A DOG IN THE STORE THE DAY PRIOR. Im assuming it was this poor puppy I bought and they knew and just wanted the money and did not disclose the issue. BETHANN WAS Irrate, intimidated me-I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED ANYTHING LIKE THIS IN MY LIFE!!!
