THE BRONX — Police are looking for a Bronx man's stolen puppy and belongings after he found it all missing Tuesday afternoon.

The victim was returning to his apartment on Underhill Avenue when he discovered the lock on his front door was broken, his apartment was in "disarray" and his female Siberian Husky named Luna was missing, according to the NYPD. In addition, $1,000 cash, pairs of Air Jordan sneakers and a Sony PlayStation 4 were also taken from his apartment, police said.

Rosendo says the home invaders even shot one of their other huskies with a paintball gun, staining the dogs fur yellow.  He says his wife is now afraid to be in the home as the family tries to deal with the heartbreak.
