A Milwaukee family is asking for the public's help to find their dog that was stolen right from their backyard. Tundra a 10-month-old American Bulldog puppy was taken from the Xopin family home on the 1000 block of W. Lincoln St. last week.

"My dad says he saw someone in the yard looking around, by then he noticed she was missing... she was gone from here" says Christian Xopin. The family has been raising the dogs for the last 6 years, often showing and selling them.

Cameras from nearby homes and businesses caught the thieves in the act. The pictures were turned over to the Milwaukee Police Department when the family filed a police report.

Christian Xopin believes whoever stole the dog may be trying to sell her. He says American Bulldogs typically sell for thousands of dollars. Whatever reason Tundra was taken Xopin says, "I would love my dog back, not only my dog but a member of our family."
