FEARS are held for the life of a cross-breed puppy worth $3500 that was stolen from a pet shop in Claremont this week.
A statement from Claremont Puppies and Pets said the puppy was on a special diet.
“If it’s changed it can cause the puppy to get diarrhoea and get dehydrated, or worse case can lead to death,” the statement said.
A woman is suspected of taking the two-month-old pet from the shop on Stirling Highway about 3.24pm on Monday.
Sergeant Jeremy Pivey said the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel-miniature poodle-cross puppy, know as a cavoodle, had not been found today.
The woman was described as being in her mid-30s, solidly built, wearing a black top and black pants with white stripes.
Sgt Pivey said the theft continued to be investigated.
If the puppy is sighted, call Wembley police on 92147100 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
