Police are appealing for anyone who sees a stolen puppy dog to get in contact.

Mimi, a female puppy, was taken from the rear yard of a property on Victoria Road, Lockwood on Tuesday, July 22 at 4.45pm.

Two teenage boys took Mimi, who was in the rear yard at the time, and made off in the direction of Lockwood Road.

One is described as white, 15-years-old, and is of medium build wearing a white vest and khaki coloured shorts. 

The other suspect was a white male, aged 14 and of medium build wearing a blue t shirt and shorts.

Mimi's breed is unknown but she is described as being black and white in colour.

PC Emma Poole of the Huddersfield Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "Mimi's owners are understandably upset about what has happened and I would appeal directly to anyone who sees Mimi, is offered her for sale or saw her being taken is asked to call myself on 101, referencing crime number 13140287290"

The case has echoes of the theft of Peaches the pug from Batley.

Peaches, a seven-month old puppy, was bought for six-year-old Ellis Barrett after he suffered horrendous burns as a baby. 

But the  valuable pet was stolen from the family home in Batley , in June after she had been let out into the front garden. 

Footage from a neighbour’s CCTV camera captured two hooded men brazenly walking into garden.

They were filmed chasing Peaches as she ran from the garden and around a parked car before scooping her into their arms and making a getaway.

The dog has never been recovered.
