When the man entered his residence to see what had been taken, he found one of his bulldogs – only one.

Thieves took 3 dogs, 9 guns, and designer clothing

It turns out the poor pooch's three siblings were taken in the burglary, along with 20 flash bangs, 9 guns, and some designer clothes that were also missing. The dognapped bulldogs are reportedly worth a total of $60,000. That's more than double the value of the stolen guns and clothes, which comes to about $27,500.

Sadly, dog theft is not all that uncommon and the Canine Journal reports that an estimated 2 million dogs are taken each year. It also notes that only around 10% of them are ever returned to their owners. French bulldogs are the 5th favorite  breed for thieves.

The Miami police is calling for any information on the robbers and the missing dogs.
