The American Humane Association estimates that 10 million dogs are stolen every year, and only half are returned. The pandemic has seen pricey breeds become hot commodities for dognappers looking to make a quick buck. A Houston couple were walking their bulldog when suddenly a car sped up to them and two men jumped out. One of the men pointed an assault rifle at them while they demanded the couple hand over the dog. The man tried to fight off the dognappers, until a shot rang out.
