Family plea for return of beloved puppy
A WORRIED family are appealing for help in finding their six-month-old puppy, which was stolen from their back garden.
Little Phoebe, right, a cross between a Pomeranian and a Chihuahua known as a Pomchi, was taken between 6.15pm and 7.15pm on Wednesday from the Clarke family, of The Groves, Hartcliffe.
Jessica Clarke, 30, said: "I put Phoebe and our two Chihuahuas out in the garden while I bathed the children and when I went outside an hour later she was gone.
"We've got a 6ft wooden fence around the garden, with no gaps in it, and a double-locked gate, so she couldn't have got out.

"I looked over the back fence and could see the weeds had been trampled down so someone must have taken her."
Phoebe is very small, is light, sandy brown in colour and has a purple collar. She is micro-chipped and looks like a small fox cub.
Jessica said her children Emily Rose, eight, Alfie, six, and Harry, three, were always playing with the puppy since they got her at eight weeks old. The fully-grown Chihuahuas, Polly and Paddy, were unharmed.
"The children are just so upset," Jessica said. "We just want to get her back. I don't want to get anyone in trouble, I just want her back. She's micro-chipped so hopefully if she is taken to a vet or something we might be able to find her.
"Pomchis are quite rare so I have no doubt she's been taken to sell on.
"I would just appeal to anyone who might come across her to call the police as soon as possible."
Anyone who knows where Phoebe is should call the police on 101, quoting log number 1132/12.
