(PIX11) – A team of dog thieves swiped an adorable Yorkie puppy from the Fresh Pond Pet Shop while the owner was on vacation.

As a mom -and-pop shop, the owner says he can’t afford to take the $1,400 loss he’s taking from the swiped puppy.

Despite the money lost, he’s really worried about the dog. If the thieves couldn’t afford to buy the puppy, how will they take care of it?

Help Me Howard is on the case.
