HAMPTON, Va. (AP) — Three of six newborn huskies stolen from an East Virginia pet salon have been found and reunited with their mothers.

The owners of the dogs shared the news when police announced on Saturday that a homeless man had been arrested and charged with breaking into the business and taking the puppies.

Bandi Murdock said The Virginia Pilot that officers found two of the 2-week-old puppies in a home where an acquaintance of the suspect lives. The other puppy was returned by a woman who told Murdock she had paid for the animal.

Murdock says she remains worried about the three puppies who are still missing.

Authorities say the suspect broke into the pet salon and stole cash and the puppies early Friday morning. According to an employee, the suspect also ate the staff members’ food, which was allegedly used to lure the puppies.

The owner of the pet salon raises the huskies and keeps the puppies and their mothers at the salon. She also runs Critter Cleaners.
