A worried couple are desperate to get their puppy back after he went missing during a walk – and they fear he has been stolen.
Milo is a six-month-old French Bulldog who was enjoying a walk with his owner Lydia Massey, 26, in Pelsall.
The microchipped puppy managed to escape his collar and run into the woods near Friar Bridge, Nest Common, on Monday, November 22.

And with the wait for Milo to return ever increasing, owners Lydia and her partner Sophie, 30, are growing more worried.
Lydia spoke to StaffordshireLive pleading for her puppies safe return, saying: “Please, he’s not yours, he’s ours.
“There will be no questions at all about anybody who’s got him; he’s just our baby and we want to be reunited with him.”
A Facebook group with more than 4,000 followers has been set up to help in the search for Milo.
Lydia said: “At the start, myself and my partner, Sophie, thought it was just going to be us and our family.
“The amount of support we’ve had is overwhelming – and now we know that there is more good in the world than bad.”
It is not just Lydia and Sophie missing Milo, with Tyson, their nine-year-old Boxer, showing signs of fear for his lost brother.
Lydia said: “He’s got separation anxiety anyway and he’s just distraught.
“I didn’t think you could feel it in a dog but trust me, you can.”
