Robbers steal eight French Bulldog puppies from family home in Manchester



Police have launched an appeal after eight puppies were stolen from a family home in Stretford.

A 26-year-old pregnant woman was also threatened by thieves after they forced their way in to a family home on Alpha Road in Trafford, Greater Manchester.

The offenders, carrying knives, made demands for cash and mobile phones upon entering the property.

The men then took eight French Bulldog puppies, which were only a day old, before fleeing the scene.

Nobody was hurt during the incident.

Detective Sergeant Dave Jones of GMP’s Trafford Borough, said: “It’s completely shocking that a pregnant woman and her three young children have faced such a terrifying ordeal, and we are determined to find the men responsible.

“As well as finding the offenders, an immediate priority is to find these puppies.

“They are only a day old, and they won’t survive for long without their mum, so they need to be brought home as soon as possible.

“I need anyone with information about the whereabouts of the puppies, or the men responsible, to please contact police as a matter of urgency.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 7747 quoting reference number 2218 of 24/10/18 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
