A California woman is distraught since coming home to find that not only had she had been robbed, but her beloved dog was missing.  Daisy is a six year old english bulldog who belongs to Shelly Fleeman, and she is like a child to her.  Fleeman came home on her lunch break to find unusual tire tracks in the driveway and the front and side doors to the house wide open. There was no sign of Daisy.

An emotional Fleeman said that Daisy loves to go for car rides and she probably thought that’s what was happening when the thieves took her.   Laura Barella, who also lives in the home said “She’s like a baby, she’s a baby,” fighting back tears for the dog who she has helped raise since she was a pup.

In addition to Daisy, the family lost about $6500 worth of goods, including T.V.’s, X boxes, iPods, and jewellery.  But all they really care about is finding their beloved pooch.  The crime is unusual for this normally quiet community, and one neighbour said “It’s just crazy that nobody saw who it was, because there’s a lot of people home, and three out of the five neighbours are home all day.”

Daisy’s family is desperately searching, posting flyers, and even trying an ad on Craigslist in an effort to get her back.  Anyone with information should call the Clovis Police Department.
