WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Dog stolen at gunpoint

That’s Midget the Chihuahua, taken during a robbery in South Delridge. Shannon says it happened to her parents Sunday near Delridge/Barton:

Please be on the lookout for my mom’s Chihuahua, Midget.

On Sunday, December 8th (at around 1:45 pm), a woman and man pulled a gun on my parents and took Midget. The woman was described as being caucasian, with shoulder-length brown hair, tall and thin. The man was described as being caucasian, with reddish/brown hair and combed to the side. He was also very thin. My mom couldn’t give very much of a description because it happened so fast, she was in shock.

Midget, is a little over a year old and is a tri-colored Chihuahua. The (photo above) is when he was only 6-8 months old. He’s bigger now and weighs about 5-7 lbs.

The SPD case # is 19-454236. We’re also adding to the Lost/Found Pets page.

    This is just terrible I would be devastated  if someone stole my pets let alone by gun point, what is wrong with people now a days?!

    This is just wrong.  I hope Midget takes care of his business in the thieves residence and car.  Hopefully Midget will be reunited with his owner soon.

    who does that?! i cannot conceive of people whose scruples are such that they take people’s pets away from them at gunpoint.i try hard to focus on the positive and i know there are lots of examples of that on the blog, but this really distresses and depresses me.

    Awww, my prayers are with Auntie and Uncle! Please help find midget and bring him home! We should not be allowing things like this happen to our elderly people…. 

  • WTF December 10, 2019 (7:29 pm)

    We’re coming for you. And we will find you.

    Abducting a beloved pet is a heinous new low, whether at gunpoint or not. I fervently hope this darling little dog is soon reunited with his family, unharmed, and the kidnappers are locked away for a long time.

    I cannot even believe how traumatizing this must have been and has been for the poor owners and poor dog… Hoping that Midget will be recovered safely and these deplorable people will be charged as they deserve.

    Dog-napped at gun point – horrible people to steal someone’s pet at gun point!

  • gokargirl December 11, 2019 (9:38 am)

    Druggies will probably try to re sell him. Check the homeless camps and Craigslist. I would have pistol whipped hom with his gun if he even tried to take my dog.

    Absolutely disgusting.  

    • Steve December 11, 2019 (5:08 pm)

      Nope, But on the right track. You can get  $250 easy for a dog like Midget.

    • Shannon Chu December 11, 2019 (5:24 pm)

      Unfortunately, not 😔

         OK this might sound weird,  but please look at this CL post again and look closely at the picture. This somebody took a picture of a picture of the person and the dog and posted it.  Makes you wonder why? These are similar markings to midget. Not trying to sound like some harebrained detective but it’s strange. Might it be worth contacting them and inquiring as if you were interested in meeting the dog?

        • Jackie December 11, 2019 (8:17 pm)

          seriously a sketchy CL ad now that you mention the picture of a picture! 

          • Drew December 12, 2019 (5:22 pm)

            It is weird, but my thinking was going like this: someone posts a picture of a dog that looks like midget so it doesn’t raise a red flag to the actual owners of midget.  But the pic is a cover and they’re actually trying to sell midget. When whoever shows up to meet the dog, their reaction: oh, he looks different than his picture but they blow it off because pictures can be sort of deceiving. However, I’m aware that my theory is like a bad episode of Scooby Doo and very doubtful that the POS’s that stole midget would concoct this type of a complicated scam. Really hope Midget is found. Been giving my pup extra hugs just thinking of something like that happening is horrifying. So sorry for the owners.

    Gotta be 2 of my best customers

  • Victoria E Lehde December 11, 2019 (8:01 pm)

    sorry but to clarify,did this happen on the sidewalk or??

  • friend of Chi's December 11, 2019 (8:38 pm)

    I just checked out that C.L.  ad. Indeed, very strange that they posted a picture of a picture. 

    • WSB December 11, 2019 (9:33 pm)

      Looks very different but definitely the owners of Midget should take a look since it was pointed out that this photo is not current…

  • ddd December 12, 2019 (10:14 am)

    Tweekers will steal anything not bolted down.

Sorry, comment time is over.
