Lee Howard, owner of 11-week old Boston Terrier, Rocco, went to take his dog for a walk, when he realised that the house had been burgled – and Rocco was gone.
By, 13 Sep 2019
Lee, 44, is a construction worker and lives in Birmingham with his family.
While the family of 4 slept, their house was burgled, and important belongings were taken. The thieves forced open a small window in the kitchen and swiped cash and bank cards. They also took the Nissan Juke vehicle and unfortunately, the family’s beloved pet, Rocco.
Just days before, Lee’s van was also robbed, and Lee believes that the same thieves came back to rob the house.
Rocco needs his medication urgently
Rocco, who is microchipped, is in regular need of medication. Lee has voiced his worry over how important it is that Rocco is taken care of and given his medication on time.
Father of two, Lee says his children, James and Willow, both aged 7, and his wife Rebecca are desperate for the puppy to be returned to them safely.
A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: “Police are investigating reports of a burglary in Cartland Road, Stirchley, where a Nissan Juke car and a puppy were stolen in the early hours of Saturday.
“Investigations are ongoing and anyone with information can contact us."

We hope he is found safely and returned to his family soon.
