An 8-week-old puppy was stolen from a San Francisco animal shelter on Tuesday afternoon, just hours before he was scheduled to be adopted by a family, shelter officials said. “James,” a light-brown and white mixed-breed pooch, was taken around 3:45 p.m. from the San Francisco SPCA at 2500 16th St. Staff at the SPCA are worried for the dog’s well-being. The shelter has video footage of the people who took the puppy.

They are described as a Latino couple in their mid-30s accompanied by a child. The man is about 5 feet 7 inches tall and heavyset, with spiky black hair and a short beard. The woman is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and thin, with dark hair. The child is possibly a 4- to 6-year-old boy with dark hair. They were driving an older white sedan, possibly a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. The puppy was scheduled to leave the center for his new home on Tuesday evening. He has been neutered and has a microchip with the number 982000167765783. The SF SPCA is offering a $500 reward for James’ safe return.
