Police are asking for public assistance to track down a puppy stolen from a Maidstone yard last month.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Junior, was only seven months old when he was snatched from his Dunedin Street home on the morning of October 23.

A hole was found cut in temporary fencing between the yard and a construction site next door.

Owner Tony says whoever took the dog must have seen him from the worksite.

“The only way you could have seen the dog was from that specific site, you couldn’t see him from the front view,” he said.

“They’ve kidnapped our dog.”

Tony says his four-year-old son is desperately missing Junior.

“It’s pretty shattering,” he said.

Press PLAY below for more from Tony.

Police have released images of the tan pup in the hope that someone can come forward with information on his current whereabouts.

Anyone who knows where Junior is or has any information that could assist police with their enquiries is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
