A 37-year-old woman who was selling pit bull puppies at a south Kansas City gas station was injured Sunday night after she tried to stop a woman from stealing a puppy out of her arms.
The victim, Chrissie Cave, said she was trying to sell two pit bulls about 9 p.m. when a female passenger in a nearby vehicle asked to see one of the puppies.
Carrying both puppies, Cave walked over to the vehicle at the Conoco station at Bannister Road and Blue Ridge Boulevard. The passenger grabbed a puppy, and the driver of the car began to accelerate.
Cave grabbed onto the vehicle’s passenger-side window and was dragged about 10 feet.
“Oh no, you are not taking away my dogs. This cannot be happening,” Cave recalled saying.
Cave hurt her elbow and suffered scratches on her legs but refused medical treatment. Police did not have a detailed description of the robber or the vehicle.
“It was a crackhead move, to roll up and to take somebody’s stuff like that,” Cave said. “Crackheads do that kind of stuff.”
Cave said she is unemployed and was selling the blue nose Gotti razor’s edge puppies so she could move from a motel into a house. She had sold six of the eight puppies in her pit bull’s litter for significantly less than what they were worth.
“I just have one puppy left,” she said. “I don’t know if I want to get rid of it.”
