A dog has been stolen during a burglary in Camborne.

Daisy was taken, along with another Staffy, during a break-in on a shed on Uglow Close.

Owner Christopher Curtis returned home at 11.45pm on Sunday to find all the windows smashed and both pets missing.

He told Pirate FM: "I had a real feeling in my gut - a real sick feeling - knowing full well that not seeing them in the shed would mean I probably wouldn't see them again.

"They're my life. Even thinking about it now is upsetting me.

"I'd rather have come back and seen my flat was empty and that I had nowhere to live than my dogs were gone.

"I would have lived in the shed with the dogs - I don't care. It's more the fact they have taken my family."

One of the dogs has been located but Daisy is still missing.

 The three-year-old bitch is described as brindle and white, with a white chest and a white line running from one side of her nose up to her forehead. She has a white sock on her front left paw. She is micro chipped and registered to the owner.
 
DC Ryan Parker from Camborne CID said: “When the owner went out for a short time, he put the dogs in the locked shed as they have a tendency to chew.
 
“When he arrived home he was extremely upset to find they had been taken.
 
“The owner is pleased to have one of his dogs back but is very worried about Daisy and is urging anyone who knows where she is to get in touch.”
 
Two men, aged 43, from Camborne, have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and released on police bail until 15th July.
 
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Daisy is asked to call DC Ryan Parker on 101 quoting AC/14/1692, or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Experts say there are a number of things we can do to stop our pets being stolen.

  • Make sure your pet is microchipped, wearing tags and kept securely
  • Train your dog to come back to you quickly when you let it off the lead
  • If someone starts chatting about your pet make sure you don't boast about its abilities, its value or give away where you live
  • When you go to buy a pet ask for proof of ownership
  • Never leave your pet unattended if you take them out with you
