"The puppy was pending adoption and now a family with children are very sad to hear that their dog was stolen," said Ashley Hermans, animal services director for Bastrop County. "The family already had paid a deposit and had an approved adoption application on the little puppy who was not old enough to go home."

The puppy is a white terrier mix with a speckled nose. She has not yet been spayed.

Call the shelter at (512) 549-5176 if you have any information.
