This topic makes me wonder where the homeless gets their dogs from.
They may have been their pets before they lost their homes, some may be strays they befriended.

But dogs that wag their tails at strangers are at risk for sure.
Yeah, I saw it fairly frequently growing up in NYC. Granted, most of the dog thefts that I am personally familiar with weren't from people's yards (a few of them were, though), but were instead from people untying and walking off with dogs who were left outside briefly by owners who were shopping at the grocery story/bodega/etc.

Here's a recent story of one such dog theft in Brooklyn (thankfully, it had a happy ending):

Here's another story:

This one is of a dog stolen from inside of the house; the thief first interacted with the dog when the dog was on the leash in the yard unattended:

Yet another story of an unattended dog stolen from someone's front yard in Brooklyn:

Note, these are only the stories that made the news! There are plenty of "dog stolen" signs and stories that I see when I'm visiting family in NYC. I don't want to freak people out and make it seem like this is an epidemic, but it definitely happens more frequently than some people may think!
