Over 1,000 dogs are stolen in Dallas, Texas every year. Lots of pits and Huskies, I have had three Huskies stolen by a known dog thief Pablo Palomo this year. He sold them before the police could get there and I could not get them back. He steals 50 dogs a year himself. We need to put a stop to dog thief. Brad Kirby lostdogsofdallas com
