Police are appealing for information after four puppies were stolen from their home.
The five-week old Patterdale Terrier puppies were stolen from a property in Lower Kingswood on Wednesday, November 2, at about 8pm.
Worth about £200 each, the puppies, three black and one black and tan, had been advertised for sale.
Burglars also stole a laptop containing hundreds of family photographs.
Their owner, Miss Tracy Hooper said: "I am totally devastated and just want the puppies back.
“Our dog keeps sitting in the cage looking for them as she's still feeding the puppies, they cannot eat solid food and need feeding.
"My son asks where the puppies are too.
"I am so upset and just want the puppies back."
Detective constable Kevin Booth said: "Naturally we are concerned for the welfare of the puppies and want to reunite them with their owners.
"Burglars broke into the property during a power-cut on Wednesday evening and even though the nights are darker now I am urging residents to think back.
“Do you recall seeing an unusual vehicle in Lower Kingswood but didn't think anything was suspicious at the time?
“Maybe you have been offered a Patterdale terrier puppy for sale at a cheap price, or perhaps you know someone who has acquired a Patterdale terrier puppy within the last 24-hours?
"If you have any information at all regarding the whereabouts of these puppies please come forward.
“We are doing all we can to reunite Miss Hooper, and her six-year-old son, with the puppies but we need your help."
Anyone with information should call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference RB/11/9550.
