The owners of two dogs stolen from a Quinton home yesterday (Tuesday 14th January) are appealing for information that may lead to their recovery.
The heartbroken couple believe the burglary at their home in the Quinton Road West area – which took place between 12 and 3pm – was planned, with their two beloved British Bulldogs being the intended targets.
10 month old female Remy and 1 year old male Rocco both have health issues and owner Amanda said: “We are […] extremely worried as Remy has just had surgery […] she needs her eye drops otherwise her eye could deteriorate again and rupture.” Rocco receives medication for a skin condition and can’t be bred due to a prolapse.
The burglars also took time to find and take all paperwork relating to the dogs – including registration papers, vaccination records and microchip details.
If anyone has any information regarding the theft or sees the dogs offered for sale, please contact West Midlands Police on 101 quoting crime reference 20BW/12166B/20 Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org
