“When I went downstairs in the morning, my home was completely ransacked, our things were thrown everywhere and my children’s uniforms were trampled on the floor, then I realised Bobby’s puppy crate was empty.
!I have three young children and they are absolutely heartbroken, they just keep asking me when he is coming home.”
