UPDATE: The puppy has been found unharmed.
HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. — Police have found a puppy that was stolen from a Petco in Holly Springs during an adoption event over the weekend, WRAL reports.
The man who allegedly stole the puppy was described as being 6-feet tall and wearing a grey and green hoodie.
He is accused of fleeing the scene after stealing a 9-week-old boxer-hound mix named Pisa.
Bystanders reportedly saw him steal the dog and yelled before he escaped.
Officials say he was carrying Pisa in a book bag.
The pet adoption organizers say Pisa is microchipped but not fully vaccinated because of her age.
