I just saw this on the news in NYC. Can you imagine someone breaking in your house to steal your dog! They don't have picture online yet, but it's such a cute dog. Apparently the dog is very rare. If anyone is on Staten Island, be on the lookout for this little guy. http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local&id=5844982 Wednesday, December 19, 2007 | 4:54 PM Thieves stole Rosie Tuesday night Eyewitness News STATEN ISLAND -- They broke down a door in a brazen robbery, but the thieves weren't after money or jewels. They wanted Rosie, a rare chihuahua. Eyewitness News reporter Stacey Sager has more on the owners pleas to get the pup back. It's turning into a pretty painful Christmas for Deseree Fisher and her family. They treat their pet chihuahuas like real children at their Staten Island home. They dress them, they watch them swim in the family pool, they even take them on trips to see Santa. Only now, their baby Rosie is gone. "Rosie was so close to me," fisher said. "She never left my side. I mean, this dog, was just my life." Story continues below Rosie is a rare blue chihuahua, dark slate in color and only a few months old. She weighs about three-and-a-half pounds. And because this type of chihuahua is so uncommon, they can sell for about $5,000 apiece. The Fishers believe that is why someone beat down their front door Tuesday night, breaking the lock, and grabbed rosie right from the house. "I don't know who would do it, but my son may have slipped to a few people how much the dog is worth," Fisher said. "If they would bring her back, there would be no questions asked," Deseree's mother, Linda Fisher, said. "There would be no problems for the person. We don't care who took her, we just want her back." Perhaps no one is taking it harder than the family's two other dogs, Harley and Brownie. Family members say Harley keeps growling and Brownie is actually behaving, which is strange. They say the dogs haven't been eating very much. The Fishers say when they opened their front door, they caught a glimpse of the thieves, who they described as a man and a woman who took off in a black SUV. "Idiots," Deseree's daughter, Michele Leckow, said. "People that think that other people don't care what they do." Police are now investigating the case. Meanwhile, Christmas just doesn't seem the same without Rosie. The fishers are insisting that whoever took her won't get into trouble, and they say they have a friend willing to pay her cost - $5,000 - for her safe return.
