A brazen dognapper was caught on CCTV as they stole a family pet from a front yard after the animal was briefly let outside.
Zoe the Shih Tzu was relaxing in the sun outside her home in Denver, Colorado, when the shocking crime occurred.
Footage shows a vehicle travels all the way to the end of the road, before turning around and heading back towards the house.
It pulls up inside, and someone gets out, walks towards the dog , picks her up and runs back to the car.
After the person jumps back into the passenger seat, the car suddenly speeds off before they've barely had time to close the door.
