Police are searching for two suspects who allegedly stole a four-month-old bulldog puppy, along with several pieces of jewelry, from a home in Toronto on Thursday.

A release issued by the Toronto Police Service (TPS) Friday said the theft took place at approximately 4:19 p.m. at a residence near Islington Avenue and Elmhurst Drive in the city’s Rexdale neighbourhood.

Investigators allege that two male suspects entered the home and, once inside, stole a beige Micro American Bulldog puppy and several pieces of jewelry.

Both suspects were seen fleeing the scene in a black, 4-door Hyundai Sedan.
