ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Two of three stolen French bulldog puppies were found Friday after they were stolen from an Orange County home. On Tuesday, the third puppy was safely recovered.
An Orange County single mother was begging for help Wednesday to find her family's stolen pets.
The dogs were taken during a burglary last week near Goldenrod Road off Janie Court in Orange County.
The burglars took a television and a crate of French bulldog puppies.
The owner, Jenn Lopez, said she put up fliers hoping someone would bring them back.
"It feels a lot like kidnapping a family member," Lopez said.
Lopez said she loves her French bulldogs like they're her own children and she was devastated to find her three puppies, Sonic, Ming Ming and Sofia, stolen from her home after a break-in last week.
Lopez said the burglars did not take her other dogs, which were in a separate room.
"The break-in was definitely for the puppies, and yeah, it's hard," Lopez said.
Lopez thinks the burglars got in by climbing up and over her fence. There was a piece of wood broken off.
I would never have imagined somebody breaking into your house to take your family pets. It's beyond a nightmare," Lopez said.
Lopez said the dogs were taken while she was gone for only 20 minutes.
Lopez said she knows exactly why her dogs were taken. She thinks they were being sold for a big profit.
Lopez said in total, the puppies could be sold for $9,000.
