Petland's owner said a man had smashed the front door with a skateboard and took off from the store after grabbing the two dogs. 

Metro updated the situation that both dogs were found safe with the Pomeranian dyed pink, to avoid detection, and the German Shepherd returned to the store.

Sean Ross, 31, was taken into custody in connection with the original incident and is facing charges of burglary and grand larceny, according to police.
