Dogs stolen from backyard and one sold, dog owner says

Posted: Updated:

A Pueblo dog owner says her three dogs were swiped right from her backyard on Monday.

She says the thief then turned around and tried to sell the animals for their own profit.

On Monday afternoon two of the dogs, Sasha and Klaus, were home safe and sound.

The owner says if it weren’t for her posts on social media that may not have happened.

As of Monday afternoon her black pit bull, Kalah, was still missing. 

"They're everything to me, my kids, they're everything. They're my babies."

Nicole Graham is talking about her three dogs. They are like family to her, family that she’s now keeping closer than ever. Graham believes someone stole the dogs from her backyard earlier this week.

"We sat there calling them for like ever and then we didn't find them so we searched and searched,” said Graham.

"By that time I just made some posts on Facebook and was just praying that, you know, somebody had them, that they were going to be returned."

One of the dogs was found on Tuesday.

"A lady called me while I was at school. She told me that she thought she had my male, Klaus."

On Wednesday, Graham says she got a message from a couple who had actually bought Sasha.

"They paid $60 from a man at a store. They wouldn't really tell too many details, but they said the man was at the store. She was on a rope and they ended up buying her, and the woman came across my Facebook post and she's like, no, this is a stolen dog."

After the ordeal she’s been through, Graham wants to prevent the same thing from happening to other pet owners.

"I really hope that people start paying more attention…if you can learn from my mistake please do because it's heartbreaking."

On Monday evening Graham contacted News 5 with updated information that Kalah had been found.

She says Pueblo police were on a call at an abandoned warehouse. A man was there, ran, and left Kalah behind.

Graham says police then picked up Kalah and brought her to their station.
