The pair of French bulldogs were stolen from a garden in Essex on Saturday afternoon.
Essex Police said: “We are appealing for information after two French bulldogs were stolen from a garden in Souther Cross, Chelmsford, on Saturday, September 12.
“We received a report at 4.20pm that the dogs had been taken.”
Anyone with information, or anyone who has been offered the dogs for sale, should call 101 quoting crime reference 42/146296/20.
