BAY SHORE, NY — A burglar walked off with a beloved puppy along with clothing and cash during a weekend robbery, Suffolk County detectives said Sunday.
Three-month-old Zushi is the second French bulldog taken in the county in under a week. A 4-year-old dog named Stella was stolen from a Huntington home on Thanksgiving. Stella was later found in Center Moriches.
“It is under investigation whether the two cases are connected,” a police official said.
The burglar who took Zushi broke into a Farington Avenue home through a back door sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning, police said.
Detectives are asking anyone with information on this incident to call the Third Squad at 631-854-8352 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
