Sherry Townsend's husband was in the front yard of their E. 106th Street home when a man threatened him with a gun and then took two puppies on Wednesday night. The purebred bulldogs are worth about $3,000 each, according to ABC7. If you see a couple bulldog pups that appear to be freshly stolen, call LAPD Southeast Station at (213) 972-7828.
