It’s been a ruff stretch of days for one Throggs Neck bar.

A hand painted fixture of a dog hanging atop Alfie’s Place at 3037 E. 177th Street was stolen in late February, police recently reported.

According to the NYPD, two men hoisted a ladder and removed the canine portrait depicting a pup enjoying a lick of Jameson whiskey from Alfie’s “without permission or authority to do so” at about 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 20.

Police released this footage of the dog-gone heist.
