Three puppies were stolen from their breeder's home after they were advertised for sale on eBay.

The breeder, who lives in the Sacramento area, says a woman called and asked for her address and then about ten minutes later, two men showed up -- and took three of the four pups.

One of the men knocked the breeder down, causing bruises and scrapes on her face.

"He was telling me, 'don't scream' and when I hit the garage door button that pissed him off, and he closed it, and that's when he threw me down on the ground," dog breeder Tamara said.

Yorkie puppies are very expensive and valued at more than $700 each.
