    Largo, FL (WFTS) — Police in Largo are searching for a transgender woman who they say used a stolen credit card and stolen Florida Driver’s License to fraudulently buy a fawn colored French Bulldog from a puppy store in October.

Bryant Farfan used a stolen credit card and a stolen Florida Driver’s License to buy a fawn colored French Bulldog valued at several thousand dollars from All About Puppies, located at 7190 Ulmerton Road in Largo, according to police.

The puppy store told police that Farfan falsified adoption records and misled the store employees regarding the dog’s future home.

The store’s manager told ABC Action News she wants the puppy safely returned.

“The only thing we are hoping for is the safe return of our puppy. We’re offering a $1,000 reward in hopes that someone will do the right thing and return her to us,” said store manager Allie Julian.

Police say probably cause exists for Farfan’s arrest and arrest affidavits are active in Pinellas County.

The store employees say they are worried about the dog’s welfare. Police and the store employees are seeking any information which might lead to the recovery of the puppy.

Largo Police say if you have purchased a French Bulldog from Farfan recently, to please contact detectives and the staff at All About Puppies to determine if the animal was stolen from this business.
