Lowell family's puppy stolen from home
LOWELL, Mass. (WHDH) -- A Lowell family’s new puppy was stolen on Thursday.
The parents had just gotten the 8-week-old puppy for their daughter's birthday. Peaches was just getting to know her new family, her new home, and her new bed.
“We've had the dog two weeks,” said Freddy Colon.
Freddy Colon's 3-year-old daughter was already attached.
“She loves that dog, dog's name is Peaches and she thinks the world of it,” Colon said.
Now Freddy’s trying to figure out how to tell her that Peaches was snatched right out of her crate in broad daylight on Thursday.
Freddy says the thief broke in through a second-floor window, ransacked his wife's jewelry, pocketed his watches and grabbed his laptop.
But police believe the burglar was really after the puppy because of what else was taken.
“They stole food and training pads. Not just a couple, they pretty much took the entire box,” Colon said.
Freddy doesn't know who would want his dog -- or why.
“I’m trying to understand it -- are they keeping it or selling it?” Colon said.
But he's pleading they come forward and promising he won't ask questions.
“I wouldn't pursue, I could care less. I just want the dog back,” said Colon.
Freddy says his daughter isn't staying at home right now because he doesn't want to upset her about the missing dog. He says he's buying time until Peaches is found.
