Dad Ben Guilherme has been completely shattered after the incident. He says that Maddie was playing in the backyard like usual on the day she was stolen.
Ben was gone for barely 10 minutes when the thief scaled the huge fence to snatch away the tiny pooch.
Maddie’s doggie siblings are significantly distressed following her theft. Ben and his partner have been frantically searching for Maddie.
They are offering a reward for the safe return of their beloved dog. Meanwhile, the cops investigating the case have revealed that this is the third French Bulldog to be stolen within a span of 1 month.
