The owner of two French Bulldogs who were stolen from a house in East Lancashire has made an impassioned plea to have them brought home.

Coco and Chanelle were stolen from an address in Holst Gardens, just off Roman Road in Blackburn on September 21.

Now, owner, Kerry Llewellyn, is pleading with whoever has taken the two adult females, to return them home, for the sake of her six-year-old son, and is even offering a cash reward if they're found.

Ms Llewellyn said: "My youngest son, Gavin, has Down Syndrome, and Coco and Chanelle are his best friends.

"He's only six and can't really play outside on his own as he has no sense of danger, so the dogs were his play friends.

"He has been so upset since they were taken. Every time he goes to the back garden he's looking for them.

"He can't go to sleep properly without them."

Ms Llewellyn says the dogs were taken after someone entered her home through a rear patio door, and now has the police involved in the search.

She said: "Everyone in the community has been so helpful, and now I just want to appeal to anyone who might have any more information about where they are.

"Has anyone seen their neighbour with two new dogs? Coco and Chanelle are both five so they will be older looking French Bulldogs.

"It's quite a close knit community round here and if they were still in the area we would have heard something by now, but we've heard nothing.

"I love those dogs, they're a part of my family, we just don't know where they are."
