Mystery of missing Staffy after break-in at Northampton property

Police don't know if Blaze scared off thieves then escaped, or was stolen

A Staffordshire Bull Terrier has gone missing after a break-in at a house in Northampton.

The female Staffy - named Blaze and with a distinctive cauliflower right ear - went missing after would-be burglars smashed a window to open a door at a property in Grange Road between 10am on Friday (February 14) and 3pm on Saturday (February 15),

Nothing was stolen in the break-in but Northamptonshire Police admit they do not know if the dog scared off the thief or thieves and then escaped from the property or was taken.
