Two men broke into Samantha Stewart’s home on Shrewton Avenue, and a third is said to have been on guard outside. The terrible attack occurred on Thursday, June 10th, at 10 a.m.

Each of the four week old puppies is worth between £ 3,000 and £ 4,000.

The break-in came while Ms. Stewart, 25, was home alone shortly after the puppies were put up for sale on Facebook.

She said, “I went back in, I locked my door, I went straight through my house to the back door, I opened the back door and the dog ran into the back yard.

“I came back to make coffee and saw something move out of the corner of my eye. When I turned around, there were two crackers in masks in my kitchen.

A reward for the safe return of the puppies was offered by their owners.

“I shouted, ‘What the hell are you doing in my house?’

“One of them shouted: ‘Give me the puppies, shut up.’ He grabbed me, got the knife and yelled at me for my cell phone

“The knife wasn’t far from me, I kind of threw the phone away. I just wanted them to go, there was nothing else for them.”

Speaking to Birmingham Live, Ryo Brown, one of the co-owners, described the attack.

He said, “This morning the neighbors saw three guys in front of the house.

“We think they must have been watching the house as they ran through the back door when the mother of the pups was let out into the garden.

“They held the woman in the house with a knife to her chest and asked for her phone. She has a mark on her chest where the tip of the knife was holding her.

“They kicked the puppy’s mother and then grabbed the puppies.

“They left the house and then ran towards Walkers Heath Park.

He added, “We hadn’t put the pups up for sale on Facebook for a long time, so think it might be linked to it.”

Mr Brown said that because of their young age, it is important that the pups recover quickly.

He explained: “The dogs are only four weeks old and still depend on their mother.

“You urgently need to be found.”

CCTV is being investigated to identify the people involved in the attack.

The number of dog thefts has skyrocketed in the last year.

According to the BBC, the number of incidents has increased 250 percent since the pandemic began.

Dog owners are legally required to give their animals a microchip that can aid in recovery.

The animal owner charity Blue Cross is calling on the authorities to take action against the thieves.

Its website states: “Unfortunately, dog theft is on the rise, with an estimated seven dogs being stolen a day in 2020 – an increase of 170 percent over 2019.

“With the surge in demand for puppies during the pandemic and the resulting rise in prices, criminals see dog theft as an easy way to make a lot of money.

“Still, dog theft is rare.

“Blue Cross is working hard to put pressure on government and police across the country to do more to protect our beloved dogs from these callous thieves.”
