A Philadelphia man says his French bulldog ‘Chaos’ was stolen at gunpoint

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A man from Philadelphia’s Frankford branch says two men held him at gunpoint and stole his French bulldog “Chaos.”

Kevin Long fears his dog will never be seen again. He bought “Chaos” last Saturday.

He says the crime happened around dinnertime on Wednesday.

“We heard the knocking. I came and opened the door and said, ‘Hey, how are you?’ He says: ‘I’m looking for Tamika.’ I’m like, ‘You got the wrong house,'” Long recalled of his encounter with the suspects.

Long says he would soon realize the suspects weren’t really looking for a Tamika, but his dog.

“When I told him he had the wrong house, he kind of pushed his way in, and then the second man came out of nowhere and he had a gun in his hand… I heard them say, ‘This is a burglary.’ Then he said: ‘Where is the dog?’”

Long’s friend Al Stapleton was also there when it happened. He was in the kitchen.

“There’s a long hallway, and when I got into the living room, the guy was already there with the gun and the dog,” Stapleton said.

Both men say the suspects took off with the puppy. Long says he can’t afford another one.

“I’ll never get another French bulldog in my life,” Long said.

He says the Philadelphia police told him that stealing popular dog breeds was more common.

It’s not just in Philadelphia.

The most famous case happened in 2020, when pop singer Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs were stolen and her dog walker shot dead in California.

Long feels lucky he wasn’t hurt and hopes whoever did it will change their mind.

“I mean, it’s for an 11-year-old girl to have her heart broken,” Long said.

Long thinks someone spotted him walking around the neighborhood with Chaos and waited for the right time to attack.

He has filed a police report and it is being investigated, but as of Thursday there has been no evidence of any leads.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 215-686-TIPS.
