A home robbery is arguably one of the most invasive things that a family can go through. And for a clan in Melbourne, Australia, their ordeal was made even worse thanks to the fact that their daughter’s puppy had been stolen. A few days after the theft, though, they saw movement in the garden: were the robbers back to disrupt their lives even more?
Back in November 2017, in happier times, Elena Sardi had gone out with her loved ones on a special trip. In particular, she and her husband Ryan Hood had taken their four-year-old daughter Maia to pick out a puppy. And as a result, they had to choose wisely – the new dog would be a proper member of the family, after all.
In the end, then, Elena and her husband and daughter decided to take home an eight-week-old Labrador puppy they called Sasha. And the animal was adopted with the intention of her becoming a companion and playmate for Maia. “[Maia’s] an only child, and the only addition to the family would be a pet,” Elena told ABC News in November 2017.
