A family was in shock to find out that their beloved French Mastiff puppy was stolen from their front yard.
In the video, we see a black Cadillac SUV pulling up next to the fence. His 10-week-old puppy, Chipper, then ran over to the fence to say hi to the men.
That’s when one of the men violently grabs CHipper by the back of the neck and throws him into their truck before racing off.
Ivy is a Dallas firefighter who breeds the dogs also known as French mastiffs at his home. He told KDFW-TV (Channel 4) that he fell in love with the breed when he was a kid.
“It’s my life outside the fire department,” he told the news station. He learned about the dogs in the movie Turner & Hooch. “They told me, ‘That’s just a mutt, you’ll never find one.’ Flipped through a dog book 15 years ago and found them. I did my research and got them. Been in love with them ever since.”
Thankfully, Chipper is back home with his owners, according to the Dallas News.
News reports said the thieves sold the dog for $300 to a car mechanic, who after suspecting his new puppy might be Chipper, contacted Ivy.
