A 15-year-old girl was walking her eight-week-old puppy at around 2:30 PM ET on Tuesday when she was approached by a car.

As multiple news outlets reported, two people in a silver-gray Ford Mustang Mach-E with four doors, pulled up to the teenager. Cops said the pair complimented the teen on her puppy and asked to hold the pooch.

"She asks if she can see my dog and won't stop following me through the parking lot," the teen told Fox 13 and continued, "So, I lift up my dog for her to see her, not touch her, and she snatches my dog."
