Girl, 3, ‘devastated’ as family dog stolen from home two days before Christmas

A young girl has been left devastated after her family’s dog was stolen from her home just two days before Christmas.

Three-year-old Amaya Waheed lives with her mum Afsha, 28, on Old Farm Close in Birmingham and the pair found their home broken into on Thursday afternoon.

The heartbroken duo returned home from a day out in the city centre, to find a window smashed, their TV stolen and worst of all; blue micro bully, Russia, was nowhere to be seen.

Afsha shared CCTV images of a man she suspects may have been involved on social media.

Hoping for a Christmas miracle, Afsha told BirminghamLive: "My three-year-old Amaya is absolutely devastated, we both are. We just want to find Russia and need help locating her.

"My daughter keeps asking me when Russia is coming home. She saw the broken glass and everything. She knows someone has taken our dog.

"I can't believe something like this would happen in broad daylight. I was in town taking my daughter for a haircut at the time.

"I'm concerned Russia will be sold to someone. But Russia is no use for breeding as she has a life-long medical issue – they may as well return her."

The 28-year-old added she is "so sad" because the nine-month-old pup "hasn't got any aggression in her".

She went on: "And she could have done a lot of damage with her teeth if she was that way inclined."

Russia has white on her chest and a mark at the back of her neck in the shape of a diamond.

The pup is said to be on medication and needs regular visits to the vets, which is another concern for Afsha.

"I just hope someone out there can help us get Russia home," added the worried parent.

A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: "We can confirm we're investigating. Anyone with information can contact us via Live Chat on our website."

Information can also be given by calling 101, quoting crime reference number 20/1983347/21.
