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
