A man stole this English bulldog puppy at gunpoint at the Clackamas Town Center.Patricia Steele
Just as James and Patricia Steele expected to close the deal Friday on selling two English bulldog puppies to a man at the Clackamas Town Center, the buyer pulled a gun.
Steele, 68, and his wife, 62, met the man at 2:45 p.m., where they had arranged to sell the dogs for $2,000 to a man who responded to an advertisement on the Steele's business website, Aldercrest Kennels.
When the man showed up, he looked at the bulldogs briefly, then pulled out a silver semiautomatic handgun.
"I've never seen a gun from that end before," Patricia Steele said.
The man demanded their wallets, watches and cell phones, but the couple refused.
"I'm not afraid to shoot you," the man said.
"That really pushed a button for my husband," Patricia Steele said. "He said, 'There's no way you're going to shoot me,' and grabbed his arm."

James Steele grabbed the man's wrist to pull the direction of the gun away from the couple. In the mayhem, the suspect could only wrestle one of the bulldogs -- two-month-old Harpo (previously reported incorrectly as Rambo) -- out of the couple's car and ran.
He jumped into a waiting dirty black 1995 Acura with Washington license plate 246YRU. The Oregon City couple gave chase.
"It was probably a stupid thing," Patricia Steele said.
The Steeles lost sight of the robbers, though, as they were heading toward Sunnyside Road. On the edge of Interstate 205, the couple pulled over to call 9-1-1.
They described the man who took the dog as 5-foot-8, 20 to 30 years old and about 150 pounds.
