Can't the store just buy another one for a few hundred bucks from a puppy mill and resell it for the $1500 or whatever they usually get? The dumb thing is if they catch the guy they'll charge him with a felony and the taxpayers will have to foot the bill for his jail time. Typical lame stream media reporting of a non-event. He probably stole the dog because in this "great" Obama economy he can't find a job.
