The owners of a stolen staffy puppy are pleading for his return.

Footscray police are appealing for public help to find the dog stolen from a Maidstone home last month.

Junior, the Staffordshire bull terrier was just seven months old when he was taken from his Dunedin Street home between 6am and 11am on Friday, October 23.

“A hole was found cut out of temporary fencing shared between the yard Junior was in and the construction site next door,” a police spokesperson said.

“Junior’s owners are desperately seeking the return of their good boy.”

Police have released images of Junior, who is tan-coloured, in the hope someone will come forward with information on his whereabouts.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
