Mango the Puppy Stolen From Queen Anne's Co. Shelter

Posted: Updated:

Update to this story: Mango, the missing puppy, was returned safe and sound to the Animal Resource Foundation on Thursday, Sept. 27.

CHESTER, Md.- Kiwi and Coconut are missing their brother Mango, a 7-week-old puppy who was stolen Tuesday by a young couple who workers at the Animal Resource Foundation in Queen Anne's County say asked to play with the puppies.

Volunteer Allison Beaulieu says the entire staff is heartbroken.

"We want our puppy back," said Beaulieu. "These puppies here are like our own dogs. That's how we feel about them. And it would be like someone coming into your own home and stealing your own dog."

The puppies are so small they are easy to hide and workers say that is exactly what a young couple did.

Beaulieu said that even Mango's mom, Dinky, knows her son is missing.

"Her behavior last night...she was looking for her puppy. She wants to get out of the door and she hunts around for her puppy," Beaulieu said.

Susan Beall, who is the shelter's executive director, said after this incident they are going to keep a tighter leash on visitors.

"We are actually thinking about having people sign in and make sure we are standing near when they leave after socializing with the animals and to make sure they don't have anybody," said Beall.

Bo Phillips and his family were at the shelter looking at puppies. He cannot believe one was stolen.

"That's terrible. I think that's horrible. I don't know I mean why would somebody steal a puppy," Phillips said.

Animal Resource Foundation staffers said they do not even want to press charges...they just want Mango back.

"We get very attached to the animals here at the shelter and we want the best for them," Beaulieu said.
