    Police are searching for three women who they say took a puppy from a Berks County pet store.

    Surveillance cameras captured the suspects in Zimmers Pets store located at 51 E. Philadelphia Ave., Boyertown moments before they took off with a female Jug Mix pup, which is a cross between a Pug and a Jack Russel, Sunday afternoon.

    The dog's face appears to have a black mask, according to Zimmers' staff.

    The missing puppy is similar in appearance to the dogs pictured above, which are from the same litter.

    The surveillance footage shows two young children were with the women as they meandered around the store.

    Anyone with information about the suspects or their whereabouts is asked to contact the Boyertown Police Department at 610-369-3050.
