Default Stolen Birmingham chihuahua puppies reunited with their mum

The owner of five helpless chihuahua puppies snatched from her Birmingham home wept with joy after being reunited with three of the tiny dogs.

Charlotte Bates was overcome with emotion after hearing the news West Midlands Police had recovered the pets - so small they’d fit into a teacup - following a tip-off.

Officers returned the puppies to Charlotte’s Tyseley home in a cardboard box on Wednesday night.

They are remaining tight-lipped over where the chihuahuas were discovered.

Charlotte, however, is still desperate to find the other two puppies. One, named Kim after her late mother - is blind and extremely vulnerable.

The 29-year-old is bracing her self for bad news.

Police faced a race against time when burglars, who smashed the front door of Charlotte’s Rushey Lane home, stole the litter on Tuesday afternoon.

Without their mother Millie’s milk, the little bundles faced near certain death within 48 hours.

Charlotte said: “When I saw them, I wept. I was absolutely ecstatic, I was in shock and couldn’t stop crying.”

But she admits experiencing mixed emotions. “The first one I looked for is Kim - she was the one I wanted to keep. I just want her back. I have a real soft spot for her.”

Millie has been treated by vets for stress following the theft. She could only look on as raiders, grabbed her puppies from their basket. They also stole £400 in cash.

wo suspects were caught on CCTV climbing a garden fence at the time of the burglary.

“Millie perked-up as soon as they were brought back,” added Charlotte, “but she knows two are missing. She kept going back to check the box to make sure they weren’t still inside.”

A Facebook campaign to find the chihuahuas attracted a world-wide audience. One animal lover from Australia got in touch, urging Charlotte to be strong.

No arrests have been made and a West Midlands Police spokesman said the puppies were found in good health.

That is good news, I hope the remaining two are recovered soon and are ok, what a terrible thing to happen, we are hearing so much about dog theft recently, it really scares me.

I would never ever leave them alone. We have some hawks in the area and although some people find it funny, Hawks are known to swoop in and pick a 3 and a half pound Chi up like its a mouse. the sad sad reality in life is that people see Chi's and know right away that they can sell them and quickly. I scour craigs list and Kijiji all the time looking for Chis for sale and then check lost or stolen ads...

That is so sad! Luckily they got most of them back.

There's a large amount of short coat chihuahuas here. The adults are not usually in danger of being snatched, but I'm sure the babies are. Any small fluffy dog is usually in danger of being stolen here. Poodles, poms, and especially yorkies are usually on the list.

I can't even imagine. I'd have been frantic too and the poor mama dog who saw these criminals stealing her babies. I hope they find the other two and the thieves.
