A seven-year-old girl says she's desperate to find her puppy who was stolen from her home in Harlow.

The four-month old Chihuahua cross is scheduled for surgery to remove a lump in its stomach from a hernia.

Two men broke into the house in Ladyshot through the back door.

The girl says she doesn't care about anything else that was taken.

"We don’t care about any of the other items which were stolen - we just want the dog back. We don’t even care who the people are who stole her.

We are devastated. It’s like having one of your children taken from you. We just want her home.”
