A couple had been set to buy the dog.
Newton Police are searching for puppy allegedly stolen from the Newtonville Pet store. Police believe three people took the Shih Tzu, according to WHDH-7News. One suspect allegedly distracted store employees while two others picked up the dog. A local couple had already purchased the puppy and he was set to go home with his new owners, 7News reported. They had planned to name him Tukka, after the Boston Bruins goalie. Carly Williams, the girl who had purchased the Shih Tzu, sent out messages on Twitter Sunday to spread the word about the theft. As a result of the theft, Newtonville Pet has stopped allowing pets to roam in the middle of store, according to 7News.

After several years of studying the space and discussing its potential for development, the city has officially posted a request for proposals (RFP) for a mixed-use development at the Austin Street municipal lot in Newtonville.

What does this empty space in Newtonville need?
Welcome to Visions for Vacancies, a Patch feature and a place where you can weigh in with your ideas about what kind of businesses you’d like to see occupying empty storefronts around Newton.

But now, we want to hear your thoughts on this empty space. The business is located between a salon and the recently renovated George Howell …
