Police are hunting for 11 French bulldogs stolen by thieves who raided a property on January 4.
It is believed the burglars deliberately targeted the five adult dogs and six puppies due to their high selling price.
The thieves also made off with a blue Mercedes E220 convertible, two high value watches and a haul of cash.
South Wales Police covering the area of Bridgend and Vale of Glamorgan said the raid took place in Barry, Wales, at around 9am.
Detective Constable Stephen Jenkins said: ‘Needless to say the owners of these dogs are devastated.

‘This is a heartless crime and we have concerns for the dogs’ welfare.
‘We are appealing for anyone who may have been offered any of the dogs or items for sale to come forward.’
The dogs are described as three lilac and tan adults (one male and two female), one sandy coloured female adult, one white female adult, as well as three white puppies (one male and two female) and three lilac and tan puppies (one male and two female).

French bulldogs are a popular breed and can typically be sold for upwards of £1,000.
Last year in October, eight puppies were stolen from a pregnant woman at knife point in her own home in Manchester.
The dogs were later returned to her but tragically six had died during the ordeal.
