PAXTON -- People are Taking Action to warn others in the neighborhood. Some say a man is driving around trying to steal dogs.

Shalyn Pettman was letting her Rottweilers out before bed when someone tried to call them into his car. It was about 8 pm and raining.

Pettman says she was watching her pets from the front door when she noticed a white car slow down in front of her home and stop. A man stepped out and called the dogs to him. She got nervous and called the dogs inside.

Pettman put the story on Facebook and found out it also happened to another family in town. Now people are trying to spread the word that it could happen to anyone. They even called the local veterinarian to watch for stolen pets.
