Ivan was stolen from a D.C. animal shelter Monday afternoon.

Police are on the look-out for three suspects in the alleged theft of a puppy from a local shelter. A spokesperson says the pup was stolen from the organization's shelter Monday afternoon.

Authorities say at first the thieves expressed interest in adopting the dog. Later it's suspected the trio took the pit bull mix dog, named Ivan, from his cage and escaped by breaking through a wooden fence behind the building.

If you have information on the theft, you are urged to call the Washington Humane Society or DC Animal Care and Control. The Washington Humane Society is offering a $1,000 reward for the safe return of the 4-month-old puppy.
