When I was in graduate school I went by my parent's house to visit and parked in back. As I left there was a guy in front of me in the alley stopped at my neighbor's house, with a low wrought iron fence reaching in for their toy poodle. I was so angry I jumped out of my car, screamed at him to put that dog down, yelled at my neighbor(Bill) to call 911 (he had the patio door opened), told him I lived next door and had his license number and car description. He claimed he was a dog lover and just petting the dog but got out of there very quickly. It was probably a good thing as the neighbor (like a second dad to me) heard me, came out with his shotgun to protect me! He had a lot of contacts in the Texas Dept of Public Safety and got the license run- guy didn't live anywhere nearby and he figured the guy was stealing the dog to resell or keep himself. You can never be too careful and that was a few decades ago!
