NORMAN — The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office needs the public’s help finding a 6-week-old Shih Tzu puppy that was stolen from a business earlier this month.

The female puppy was taken Dec. 17 from the Puppy Love Farms, 9151 U.S. 77 in Noble. Investigators believe someone burglarized the kennel and took the puppy.

Detectives said the puppy will need veterinarian attention soon.

The puppy is black and white and weighs about 1 pound. The canine is valued at $600.

Anyone who may have information about the puppy is urged to call the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office at 701-8888 and ask for a detective.

Karen Cox, owner of Puppy Love, is a state licensed breeder. She said the theft of puppies this time of year is not uncommon.
