According to RCMP, the victim welcomed the men into her home after they indicated they were interested in purchasing a puppy from her recent litter. Once inside, it’s alleged one of the men grabbed an eight-week old puppy and ran outside.

“The homeowner followed them and got shoved to the ground while attempting to stop them from stealing her puppy,” RCMP said in a news release.
