A man stole an adorable dog from a Bushwick laundromat on Monday, according to a police report.

The dognapper entered the clothes-washing facility on Knickerbocker Avenue near Dekalb Avenue at around 3:30 pm, swiped a 36-year-old man’s cockalier — that’s part cocker spaniel, part cavalier King Charles spaniel — pooch, and trotted off Queens-bound on Knickerbocker Avenue, according to a police report.

The alleged puppy poacher lured the canine out from a room inside the laundry, security footage shows.

A cockalier can fetch up to $1,300 on the open market, according to PuppyFind.com.

Police say their suspect is a 6-foot, 170-pound man in his 30s, with black hair, brown eyes, and a tattoo on his arm.

Authorities ask anyone with information about the crime to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reach deputy editor Ruth Brown at rbrown@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260–8309. Follow her at twitter.com/rbbrown.
