A local dog adoption group said a puppy was stolen during an adoption event Saturday.

Jennifer Remeta with Abby's Animal Angels said an 8 week old boxer mix was taken while volunteers were helping prospective parents with adoption paperwork during an event outside the Petco on Woodruff Rd. in Greenville.

Remeta said the puppy, named Romeo, has a white patch on his chin and white toes on his two back feet. He was last seen around 2:30 p.m., Remeta said.

Remeta said volunteers and Petco workers did a thorough search for the area and the store and are certain the puppy didn't wander off.

Remeta said they filed a report with the Greenville Police Department, but said because Romeo was not tattooed and was too young to be implanted with a microchip containing his owner's identity and contact information, there was not much police could do to help.

Abby's Animal Angels will return to Petco on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. to continue the adoption event and hand out flyers with Romeo's picture on them, Remeta said.

"We just want to get Romeo into a good home where he will be loved," Remeta said. "If someone wanted him but couldn't afford the adoption fee, we could've worked something out. We just want whoever took him to bring him back so we can go through the proper adoption process."

If you have information about the missing dog, Remeta asks that you call Abby's Animal Angels at 803-640-4777 or at
