A FOX 10 EXCLUSIVE
Caught on camera: Thieves steal not one, but two dogs from the back yard of a home. They were seen opening the gate and then dragging the dogs out of the yard near Southern and 13th Place Thursday morning.
The dogs' owner called FOX 10 Friday to share the video with us and she's hoping someone will recognize the men and help bring the dogs home.
"I just want my dogs...because that's my son's dogs," said Amber Henry.
Henry is pleading for the return of her two dogs, Bella and Stacks, which are blue-nose pit bull terriers.
"If you see in the video..they're not vicious dogs -- had they been vicious, they would have ripped their arms off. And they patted them and basically just dragged them out by their necks," she said.
The thieves didn't just come for the dogs, they actually came and went five times Thursday morning while Amber was at work, taking speakers, rims and tires from the back yard.
But it's the dogs, 1-year-old brother and sister, that Amber is most worried about.
"They were kind dogs..so that's all I want. I don't care about the rims -- that's replaceable. All I want is my dogs," she said.
The suspects' vehicle was also captured on camera -- an early 2000s model gold Chevrolet Malibu.
Amber says she paid $1,400 for each of her dogs, but it's not the money she's worried about.
"It's like they say, no one's going to take care of your kids the way you do. It's the same thing for animals. People take those animals to train them to be vicious -- my dogs weren't there to do that," she said.
Amber believes the men in the video likely live near her home since they kept returning so many times in the span of about an hour.
If you recognize the men or the car, call the Phoenix police.
