‘Beautiful best friend’ taken by intruder

A beloved pet dog who vanished from inside a home in Melbourne's southeast is suspected to have been stolen by an intruder, police say.

The golden retriever named Peggy is believed to have been taken from a home in McComb Boulevard in Frankston South sometime between 10pm on February 16 and 6am on February 17.

"Officers do believe someone has entered the home during the night and made off with Peggy," a police spokeswoman said.
