This is a story that is happening more and more every day, dog theft.

Another Lubbock area dog owner, Gracie Talamantez, recently had her pit/mix puppy stolen right out of her back yard in the middle of the night.

Neighbors caught the theft on surveillance cameras, but to date, Gracie has been unable to locate their puppy, Archer.

Talamantez is worried that the dog may be used for something like bait for dog fighting.

This should also serve as a reminder to lock your fences and be alert, not just for your own pets, but friends and neighbors as well.
