2 of 3 stolen puppies from dog rescue recovered, arrests made; pitbull outstanding

Three puppies have been stolen from Family Dog Rescue in San Francisco. A small reward has been offered for their safe return. 

Family Dog Rescue in San Francisco says the two huskies who were stolen from their shelter were recovered in Hayward just before 11 p.m. on Thursday.

The puppies were located after a Craigslist post showed them for sale. Hayward Police Department met the seller and arrested two men, the shelter confirmed. The pitbull is still missing.

The shelter had earlier in the day asked for the public's help in finding three puppies that were stolen Wednesday night.  

Family Dog Rescue said thieves broke into the shelter on Shafter Avenue and took two purebred huskies, a pitbull, as well as electronics. 

The puppies range from just a few weeks old to four months. The two female huskies, who are sisters, are spayed and microchipped. Their names are Levi and Lara.

The rescue said on social media that the six-week-old male pitbull suffers demodex mange and is in need of his medication. 

Shelter officials said they fear the dogs would end up for sale on sights like Craigslist, which ended up to be true for Levi and Laura.

The rescue is offering a small reward for the safe return of the animals, no questions asked.
