Dog stolen during Southwest DC break-in

Another dog was stolen in D.C., with police saying that this time it was after someone broke into an unoccupied residence in Southwest.

D.C. police said that the suspect forcibly entered the residence in the Unit block of Forrester Street SW around 10 a.m. on Wednesday where they took “Aurora,” a 20-week-old French bulldog puppy with black and white fur and was wearing a purple harness at the time.

Two other dogs were stolen earlier this month, with one still at-large.

“Bruno,” a 1-year-old French bulldog with black and white fur and a black collar, was taken in Northwest after a suspect brandished a gun and demanded the victim’s dog and property, before fleeing the scene.

“Pablo,” an Australian Shepherd puppy, was taken at gunpoint outside of a CVS in Northeast. Police were able to track down the puppy and reunite it with its owners. Seven people were arrested, with four suspects being later released.

Below is the area where the dog was stolen:
