A seven-week old white and brown King Charles Cavalier puppy was stolen during a burglary in Newcastle this weekend.

It happened at an address in Strathmore Crescent on Sunday, January 18.

The burglars broke in and also stole a playstation and DVDs.

Newcastle West Neighbourhood Inspector Alan Davison said:

Clearly the owner is distressed and desperate for the puppy to be returned and I would ask anyone who has any information about this burglary to contact us."
