GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Greenville police say charges are pending after a man turned down for adopting a puppy because he had no fixed home staged a heist of the Siberian husky and its litter-mate.

Greenville Humane Society executive director Kim Pitman says the man, a female accomplice and the driver of a get-away car staged the theft on Thursday.

The rejected man walked into the shelter just after it opened. The woman grabbed the two-month-old puppies, yanking one of them out of another customer’s arms. The two ran outside and sped away in a waiting sedan.

The dogs were recovered and returned to the shelter by Saturday.

Humane Society officials said puppies Serene and Tulay were spayed the day before they were taken and needed at least 10 days to recover.
