HOUSTON – A woman in southwest Houston was horrified Thursday when she came home and discovered burglars had broken into her Alief-area home.

She was heartbroken when she realized the bad guys had taken her two precious Yorkies.

"I called for my dogs and two of their kennels were gone," Kerie O’Brien said.

Bella, a 5-year-old female and Quinn, a 1-year-old male, were also gone.

"To take my dogs? That is a totally different story. That is just mean. That is a cruel person. You don’t do that," O’Brien said.

O’Brien has posted signs all over her neighborhood and she is using social media to spread the word.

"For all I know, they could be hurt or anything and that scares me," O’Brien said.

A third Yorkie hid so the burglars didn’t get her.

O’Brien says she doesn’t care about the stolen TV or laptop. She just wants her dogs back.

"The things can be replaced. They are just material. But these [dogs] are living things and I made a commitment to take care of them and keep them safe," O’Brien said.

If you know anything, please call the Houston Police Department.
