FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A disabled veteran in Fayetteville is heartbroken after her puppy was picked up by a stranger while she was inside a convenience store, according to WTVD.

Angel Henderson said she purchased the pit bull puppy to help her cope with her PTSD and a traumatic brain injury.

Last Friday, Henderson told WTVD she stopped by a convenience and let the dog out. She had asked a passenger in her vehicle to watch the pup, but the person didn’t.

Surveillance video shows the puppy running up to a man walking out of the convenience store. In the video, the man picks up the puppy and asks several people if it belongs to them. When no one claimed the puppy, the man took it with him.

“The dog was wandering loose, no identification, we want to make that clear,” said officer Antoine Kincade of the Fayetteville Police Department.

Henderson said she has posted missing flyers all around the convenience store area. She said there is a reward for the puppy’s safe return.
