SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

A KHQ viewer contacted our newsroom after she called police to report her dogs had been taken from her yard on Monday.

Her 6 month old Yorkie pups named "Peanut" and "Raider" were playing in the courtyard at her apartment in Spokane Valley when she says they were taken after turning her back for just minutes. After they went missing, Christina Meyer Sills asked a neighbor to help look for the dogs. The neighbor was confronted by a man she says after calling the dogs names. The man replied "I want 100 dollars for them or I'm sending them to the pound." That neighbor, Brietta D'Amore tells KHQ the man read her the information from the dogs collar and asked for the money before he would give back the dogs.

D'Amore says she called out to Christina that the man had her dogs. After Christina came running the man told her the same thing. "I was crying, I was begging, I was hysterical. I was saying sorry if you're having a rough day just please give me my dogs back."

Christina says the man refused and also refused to give up his name and information before he ran off.

Spokane Valley Police confirmed they are investigating this bizarre case.

If you have any information about this case you are asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
