Desperate pleas for the return of stolen puppies

KIIRTON: Five-year-old Demi Weight is today desperate for help after her grandmother’s two puppies were stolen, leaving her heartbroken and devastated.

Loveable pups Louis and Gucci were taken from a kennel in a garden in Meadowlands, Kirton, near Felixstowe, between 4pm and 7.30pm on Monday October 18.

Tina Hilden, owner of the “friendly and playful” French bulldog duo, said that the crushing realisation that the pups have been taken, has left her granddaughter devastated.

Since discovering the two pooches had been pinched, Demi, who attends Trimley Primary School, has been busy creating posters to put up around Kirton.

Ms Hilden told the Evening Star that she had brought the friendly pair because she was lonely after her Miniature Daschund passed away.
