A devastated dog lover in Edinburgh has been left reeling after her newborn pooch was snatched away.
Hayley Jempson was out shopping at Asda when the dognapping took place in the Craigmillar area of Edinburgh, at around 11pm on Sunday.
She returned home to discover her front door badly damaged and opened, and her beloved Olde English Bulldog missing.
Cooper, who is only nine weeks old, had been left at home with Hayley's other dog Charlii.
Hayley is worried about Cooper due to his young age. The delicate pup has a special feeding routine and has not yet had all of his vet's injections.
Charlii was left "quivering" by the ordeal.
Hayley took to Facebook to say: "Cooper has been stolen. Was left for a couple of hours whilst I went to the shops. Can people share this, stolen around 11 last night. Was broken into.
"Been up all night with the police and then surrounding my house etc I can't sleep I'm exhausted I won't sleep till he's home.
"Stupid stupid evil horrible people in this world.
"He will be home soon police are aware & have police cars circling areas of Niddrie and Craigmillar.
"They took nothing else of value or clothing just the dog they also left my Charlii quivering. I can't believe this has happened evil sick twisted folk around!
