Four young puppies stolen from a San Francisco home on Friday are now being held for ransom, according to reports.
Four black-and-white Doberman and beagle mixes were stolen from a home at 100 Cameron Way in San Francisco's Bayview District on Feb. 7, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper.
Thieves broke into the home, hit the adult dogs on the head with a blunt object, and grabbed the young puppies, according to reports.
The next day, the owner of the dogs received a phone call from the alleged thieves, who demanded $200 in return for the puppies. The owner did not have the money and turned the offer down, according to reports.
The dogs, three-to-four weeks old, are still missing. Police are asking for the public's help.
