in Chicago, a French bulldog named Delilah has been gone since Sunday. That’s when her owner says she met the guy who took her. They’d been walking in a park near their home in the Pilsen area.
The dog’s owner, Beth Gottlieb, says she let the man into her house to use the restroom. She believes that while he was there, he unlatched a door that he would later use to get inside and steal the dog.
“The same exact person stole a dog from a pet store, and it’s an assault,” Gottlieb said. “I think it’s a crime ring.”
She says police dusted her door for fingerprints, and they’re working on a second case with a suspect fitting the same description. Gottlieb said the man who stole her dog had shaved eyebrows, multiple ear-piercings, tattoos on the sides of his neck and a tattoo on his arm that says “Alexi” or “Alexa.”
Animal experts say they’ve found thieves selling dogs like Delilah on the Internet for hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.
