WILKES-BARRE — Authorities say Rottweiler puppy stolen from a Pennsylvania pet store by a man armed with a gun has been found safe.

The 9-week-old dog named Remus was found Thursday on a Wilkes-Barre street. It had been taken Wednesday by a man who allegedly displayed a gun tucked in the waistband of his pants.

The store’s owner told The Times Leader that a test of a microchip implanted in the puppy confirmed it was the dog that had been stolen. The puppy didn’t appear to be harmed.

The man who allegedly took the dog remains at large.

Officials say he, a woman and a child had played with the dog at the store on Wednesday. The man later returned and, after displaying the gun, demanded he be given the dog.
