Search for Puppynapping Suspect Underway, Boxer Pups Returned Safe

BROOKSVILLE – Two mixed Boxer pups are back in the “paws” of their mother today, after they were stolen from the Humane Society, during the early morning hours on Thursday.

According to the facility’s new Director, Barbara Sprague, the suspect pictured in the video below entered the facility, not once, but twice on Thursday, where he stole the two pups.

Sprague says, after posting surveillance video of the would-be thief on social media, an anonymous tip led them to a residence where they located both puppies.

The suspect is still at large at this time; however, the Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft.

We will bring more on this story as it develops.

  • Gonna sell them for drugs duh and he’s a thief let one of those pits run around in there when closed that would have made great news.

  • Seems like the money it costs to adopt, goes into helping the Humane Society continue providing medical care, funds for spay and neuter and space/supplies to house animals for more people to come and adopt. Not necessarily a bad thing.

  • Stealing them, is illegal. Evidently they’re too young to leave mom yet, and the difference between stealing and adopting isn’t money, it’s a background check. Someone who would steal dogs rather than pay an adoption fee is probably someone who is going to harm them.

  • I wouldn’t buy a soda from this dirt bag, much less a beautiful boxer puppy, without questioning where it came from. Why was this place unsecured, anyway? Anyone can go and come in at will, it seems. I am sure he did not care about the puppies at all….maybe to be used for bait? Sicko.

  • Mike L, I agree, don’t take my prior comment as any endorsement of someone stealing. He definitely made a bad decision to just take the dogs. It would be very interesting to know what this fellows motivation was.

  • These puppies were only 6 weeks old and not weaned from the mother. They were snatched from their mother and siblings too young. Too young to be adopted yet.

  • Though the purpose is to get the puppies a home, stealing is a crime.

  • What is the difference in him taking them or going back the next day an adopting them. Oh nevermind it’s money. Don’t believe me see what they charge you to adopt a desirable animal such as a boxer or Bassett hound. It will amaze you what it costs.

  • Ruth, if you stop and think about it the puppies are in a shelter because they have no home and are waiting to be adopted. Maybe the guy is not the vilan you think he is.

  • The power of decent security video and social media in cases like this is amazing.

  • The original story said the mother was reunited with her pups. Maybe she gave birth at the Human Society. SO glad this ended well.
