WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Petland stores in east and west Wichita are asking for the public's help to find three criminals who broke in and stole a total of four puppies from each store.
Petland in east Wichita says thieves broke in to its store around 2:15 a.m. and stole a female blue merle Miniature Australian Shepherd and a black and white male French Bulldog.
