THESE three Staffordshire bull terrier puppies are hoping their two brothers are returned by thieves, who carried out a suspected daylight theft on Saturday.
The two pups, just nine weeks old, were stolen from a garden in Grosvenor Road, Wisbech.
A cage was also stolen from the front of the home yesterday (Wednesday), leaving a single mother-of-four terrified of the thought she is being watched.
Paula Wright said: "I am certainly not comfortable knowing someone has been on my property, especially when you have four children.
"Someone must have been watching me and must have known I have got the puppies, so I think it's someone who lives close to my home."

The two pups are black and brindle coloured, with white flashes. One of them has a birth mark on its head.
They were taken between 11am and 9pm Saturday, but Mrs Wright is unsure of exactly when. Both the dog's parents, Teddy and Tilly, are also owned by Mrs Wright.
"None of my neighbours saw anything," she said. "There were two big bones in the garden afterwards but I am still surprised my dogs fell for such a trick.
"They usually don't like people they don't know coming into the garden - and Teddy's not easily bribed."
Mrs Wright, separated from her husband, has four children aged six and under.
She also said the dogs usually have a free roam of the garden and the hallway in the home, but since the theft they have been locked indoors.
Police are currently investigating the theft. Det Con Sharon Garrett said: "These puppies were taken from a litter of five at the address and the owners are anxious to see that they are returned.
"If anyone knows anything about this theft, or have been offered puppies for sale where neither parent is available to see, please contact me."
