BEDFORD-STUYVESANT -

A Bedford-Stuyvesant woman says a man was caught on surveillance video taking her beloved dog.

Senorita Wiggles has been missing since Friday afternoon, when her owner, Ceritta Turner, says a man lifted her right off the street.

Surveillance video obtained from a neighboring restaurant shows the 2-year-old silky terrier approach a man who pets her, picks her up and takes off, according to Turner.

Turner has called the police and posted flyers in the area, desperate to get her dog home safely.

Senorita Wiggles has a black tail and was last seen wearing a purple harness. She's well-known and loved in the community and has gathered quite a social media following with her owner.
