A gang of four axe-wielding thugs smashed their way into a terrified couple's flat at 4am to steal their beloved pocket bully puppy.
Callum Borg and his partner Jessica Glover, both 24, were asleep in their Walkden, Greater Manchester flat along with their two-year-old son when they say they heard a smashing sound at 4.20am this morning.
Callum was greeted by a gang of four men armed with machetes and axes after he locked his young family in the bedroom for their safety.
Callum told the Manchester Evening News his arm was cut during the attack, which saw the men make off with his ten-week-old dog Skylar.
Police were called and forensics have taken evidence from the flat, he told the publication, adding that the man made off in a white BMW.
He took to social media to appeal for the return of Skylar, offering a reward for her to be left somewhere safe.

He said: "It was a very frightening experience. They were obviously after my dog. We want her back."
A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: "Police were called just before 4am to an address in Worsley following reports of four men with weapons entering a property, and taking a puppy.
"Officers attended and found the front windows of the property had been smashed, and a 24-year-old man had suffered minor injuries.
"A 10 week old bulldog type puppy had been taken."
Detective Constable Joseph Morris, from GMP's Salford District, said: "We understand this is a distressing incident for those involved, as well as for the community."
