A four-year-old Croydon Hills girl has been left devastated after a heartless burglar took her eight-week-old Labrador puppy Sasha.
The family returned to their Croydon Hills Drive home at 11:30am on Monday and discovered it had been broken into.
The thief entered between 9:30 and 11:30am made off with a number of items including a laptop, iPad and jewellery.
The residents scoured the neighbourhood and realised Sasha had also been taken.
