A Staffordshire Bull Terrier has been stolen from her home.

Northumbria Police officers are appealing information after the staffie, named Lily, was taken in a burglary in Sunderland.

She was stolen from a property in Toward Road on April 6.

The incident happened between 10am and 11.20am.

Her owner had left her alone while she visited a friend - but when she returned home someone had entered the house and taken the brindle-coloured staffie.

Lily has a small scar on the back of her front right leg.

Inquiries are ongoing, and officers are appealing for witnesses.
