A puppy was stolen from a San Francisco animal shelter Thursday afternoon and Animal Care and Control officials are asking for help in getting him back.
The puppy, a 2-month-old black and white male pitbull named Louie, was taken from the city shelter at 1200 15th St. in San Francisco around 2 p.m., according to San Francisco Animal Care and Control spokeswoman Deb Campbell.
A person of interest in the theft is described as a woman wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, accompanied by a man wearing a white v-neck t-shirt and a hat.
Animal shelter officials said the pair tampered with a locked cage, took the puppy and ran out of the door with the pet.
Anyone with information on the theft or the puppy's location can call Animal Care and Control at 415-554-9400.
