    ‘Give Me Your Dog or You Die’ – English Bulldog Named Capone Stolen in West Hollywood

    An English Bulldog named Capone was forcibly taken at gunpoint from his owner in West Hollywood on Monday night. Owners are asking for leads to his safe return.

    Justin Garcia was in the midst of taking Capone for a walk on Olive Drive at approximately 11:45 p.m. He told Annie Rose Ramos of KTLA 5, that a trio of thieves suddenly jumped out of a black four-door Jeep and brandished a firearm at him.

    Garcia reported that the assailants, concealed by masks, issued a chilling ultimatum, demanding, “Give me your dog or you die.”

    One of the thiefs seized Capone and placed the dog in the back of the Jeep, while another  invaded Justin’s car, ransacking its contents and scattering his possessions. Remarkably, only an outdated security badge was taken. A bundle of cash the vehicle was untouched.

    The culprits hastily made their escape, eluding Justin’s attempts to pursue them.

    Both Justin and his girlfriend searched the neighborhood trying to locate their cherished pet, hoping the thieves might have abandoned Capone in the vicinity.

    Capone, a one-year-and-ten-month-old tricolor English bulldog weighing approximately 50 pounds, is described by his owners as the epitome of friendliness and sweetness.

    “I’m deeply worried; he’s not only just a part of our family and our life, but he’s my emotional support animal,” Justin told KTLA. “He’s everything I need when I have a hard day, and I come home; he’s there for me with unconditional love.”

    In our impersonal and capitalistic society,pets are becoming more important to people as daily companions and calmers.I am not surprised at this development.Glad that the couple is secure and hope the dog can be found and returned.

    Stupid comment. Best not to speak if that’s all you have to say. Where’s the compassion? I’m guessing you are angry and empty. Sad.

    Nope you haven’t googled my name “Tom Smart.” I’m sick of people acting like pets have rights and people do not. Don’t step in that turd!

    they both have rights you “genius” but pets can not talk so some people, like me, are being their voice.
    and what if i like dogs 100 times more than i like humans, what’s it to you that you are “sick of it” – and who cares if you are sick of it – if you are sick go to the doctor and we are not him (your doctor)!

    That dog is hideous! I’m sure the owner was happy to get it off their hands.

    Oh look its another “i treat dogs like people and people like dogs.” Good lord look at that dog. So inbred they cannot breathe or walk. But the most important thing is that they be living toys for people with weird issues.
