A 4-month-old Boston terrier was stolen from its cage at The Left Paw in New Hyde Park Wednesday, police said.

The terrier, named Pip, is valued at approximately $5,400. He is approximately 15 lbs. with black and white fur and a white stripe down the middle of his stomach.

“Our dogs are our world to us and for a dog to be taken out of its environment without their supplies or food, it is very concerning for the pet and their health,” manager Alison Steullet told News12.
The store said in an Instagram post Pip is shy and his ears curl back.
“As you may already know, we had a baby taken from us last night! We are all so worried for his safety. Please let the authorities know if you see any of the people shown on footage. Pip is a shy black and white Boston Terrier,” the post said. “Something rare about him is his point ears curl back since he is still a growing pup. If you see him or have any knowledge. please call 1-800-244-8477.”

A woman and child entered the store around 6 p.m. before unlocking the dog’s cage and fleeing the scene in a gray 4-door pickup truck, police said.

The child was also seen five minutes earlier in the store with a man.

The woman was described as white with black hair wearing a black top and blue jeans and the man was white with a beard and black jacket, police said.
