Five bulldog puppies have been stolen from a property in Mooredown, Bournemouth.
They were stolen sometime between 10am and 10:30am on Monday 4th November from a house on Lystra Road.
The offenders forced their way into the garden shed and stole the cross breed puppies.
Police Constable Richard Stroud, of Bournemouth Police, said, "This incident has caused the victim great upset and he is extremely keen to get the dogs back.
"The puppies are only 3 weeks old and are heavily dependent on their mother, so it is important they are returned.
"They are white with black patches.
"I urge anyone who has been offered bulldog cross puppies in strange circumstances or for an unusually low price to report this to Dorset Police."
Witnesses should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 04:144.
