A couple pretended to shop in a Northeast Philly pet store before taking off with a puppy.
Surveillance video from a Pets Plus Natural located on the 9000 block of Roosevelt Boulevard shows a man and a woman walk into the store around 3 p.m. Thursday and then walk out with a Yorkshire terrier puppy.
The pair left holding the yorkie as though it was their own dog, according to witnesses on the scene.

The two suspects even approached the store counter before the man, who was wearing a white t-shirt, black gym shorts and black Addidas sneakers, scooped up the small dog and covered it with his arms as he exited.
Anyone with information on the suspects or the crime is urged to contact the Philadelphia Police Department.
