According to website listings, Shiba Inu puppies are valued between $1,000 and $2,500.

"It's hard to know whether his motivation was to take the puppy for himself or potentially take this puppy because it's so valuable and potentially sell it to someone else," said Nicole Wilson, director of PSPCA humane law enforcement.

That suspect was last seen on surveillance video walking toward Whitaker Avenue after 5 p.m. on Friday.
