Puppy stolen during burglary

A Melbourne family has been left heartbroken after their eight-week-old labrador puppy, Sasha, was stolen during a burglary.

Police said the family returned to their home on Croydon Hills Drive to discover it had been broken into.

The family of three had only had the dog for one week, but in that time the family's four-year-old daughter had become 'inseparable' from the puppy.

A number of items, including a laptop, iPad, and jewellery were also stolen.

The owner of the dog, Ms Sardi, said the puppy had a medical condition and 'might get sick if the right thing is not done'.

UPDATE (9/11/17): The family is rejoicing after their puppy was returned overnight.

Ms Sardi's husband said the family is 'ecstatic'.
