Browning said her daughter can not stop talking about the puppy and has been crying from sleeping every night.

"They slept together and since the dog left, literally cried to sleep every night and throughout the day, says" I miss my dog, "Browning told ABC11. "She is really upset about that."

Browning says that the dog usually goes everywhere with the family, but they left her alone for a few hours on Saturday to get used to staying at home.

"I'm trying to train them at their kennel, so I said," It'll be fine for a couple of hours, "he told the Burlington Times-News.

The Burlington police responded to the theft and discovered that nothing more than Annabella May had been stolen.

They took fingerprints from the kennel, which have not yet been combined with anyone.

Browning says he does not have other people in the house, so whoever took the dog must have seen them.

She thinks that the thief entered through a broken window, which was to be repaired this weekend.
