Authorities are now searching for two men who were caught on camera kidnapping a Dogue De Bordeaux puppy.
The Mesquite Police Department is trying to find the men seen snatching the 10-week-old pooch from a gated yard in Mesquite, Texas, Saturday, authorities said in a statement.
In the footage released by the dog’s owner, a Dallas firefighter named Matt Ivy, the unidentified suspects can be seen pulling up in a black Cadillac SUV.
After hopping out of the vehicle, one of the men violently grabs little Chipper, who can be heard screaming, by the neck as two adult dogs barked at the men. The suspects then drove off and the two dogs watched on helplessly.
Ivy shared the horrifying video on Facebook writing, “Chipper was stolen yesterday from my yard!!!!” before pleading with his followers to help bring his beloved pup back.
He later created a GoFundMe page for reward money
