The little dog was to go to her new family the day after her flight.

A Philadelphia shelter in the United States had to deal with the theft of a puppy on Mother’s Day.

The puppy slipped into the thief’s purse

The story begins on May 10, when two women show up at the PSPCA headquarters. CCTV footage shows a woman taking the puppy out of its box before slipping it into her handbag.

As revealed by the Daily Voice, the stolen little dog had been adopted by a family who were impatiently awaiting her arrival.

The thieves have been found

The animal named “Wendy” was to be sterilized the day after her kidnapping.

Following this abduction, a call for witnesses was launched. Miraculously, Wendy was returned to the shelter after the thieves were identified, authorities said.
