TWO dogs “brazenly stolen” from the Dogs’ Refuge Home on Wednesday night were “boyfriend and girlfriend” and needed to be re-homed together.

Wembley Police released CCTV footage to Channel 7 of a young man who cycled to the Shenton Park refuge and walked out with the two dogs yesterday.

“Please share, copy, print, distribute, spread the word about our two beloved residents who were brazenly stolen from our premises last night,” the Dogs’ Refuge Home wrote on Facebook.

“Cleo and Ceasar had only been reunited to be re-homed as a bonded pair just yesterday, and someone decided to steal them.

“We would very much like them to be returned safely to us, and soon, as Ceasar requires regular medication.”

On the refuge website, one-year-old staffordshire terrier cross bullmastiff female Cleo was described as “sweet and very shy” and “looking for a family who can give her lots of love and teach her that the world is not such a scary place”.

The online bio of bullmastiff male Caesar (1) said he was a “bright, boisterous boofhead”.
