SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A Salem woman says a man stole one of her 8 ½-week-old English bulldog puppies at gunpoint from inside her home.

KPTV-TV reports (https://goo.gl/GLFXPw ) that Lori Andrews had arranged for some potential buyers to meet her litter of puppies on Tuesday. Each dog costs about $2,000.

Andrews says a family with four young children spent an hour in her home playing with the puppies. The father said he wanted a male, because he had a male that died. She says the man teared up when talking about his deceased dog.

When the children chose a female puppy, they returned to the car with their mother. Andrews says the man then pointed a gun at her and said he was taking the puppy free of charge.

Salem Police said detectives have been assigned to the case.
