The heartbroken owner of a missing four-month old puppy is desperately appealing for him to be returned home.
British Bulldog Winston disappeared from the garden of his home in Scarborough Crescent, Maltby, Rotherham, at 11.30am on Wednesday morning.
Today his tearful owner Tracey Byrne, aged 48, appealed for him to be returned home.
She believes Winston was stolen from her garden while her daughter’s back was turned.
Tracey told The Star: “I hand reared him after he was born because he was rejected by his mother and he is on a special diet.
“He needs to be back home. I’m worried sick about him.
“I’m offering a reward for his safe return. If someone has him and they bring him back there will be no questions asked, I just need him home.”
Tracey, who is a dog groomer, was at work when Winston disappeared.
Her 16-year-old daughter Olivia was in the house but went upstairs and when she came back Winston had gone.
She is offering a reward.
