A sketchy guy was selling a darling Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a NYC park. Kind-hearted Tena Cohen saw this and paid to get the super cute dog away from him! Scanning the pup's micro-chip helped her return the Ruby to its owners, who apparently missed it quite dramatically.
Rolling Stone reports that the band DEVO "are set to release a track later this month entitled "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)." It is inspired by Mitt Romney's notorious road trip from Massachusetts to Ontario, during which he transported the family dog, Seamus, in a kennel strapped to the roof of his station wagon."

A thief caught on CCTV at a pet store made his escape by stuffing a $1,400 puppy down his pants.
Recorded by Zoo-Rama in Elmont, New York, footage shows the dog snatcher grabbing the pup out of a cage, stretching open his waistband, then shoving it into the darkness—start from about 5m in. Trapped inside his sweats, the Pomeranian writhes as its captor heads for the exit. If you know anything about the caper, the store owner has $500 for you.
