    People Are Searching For A Baby Pug Named "Egg" After He Was Stolen From His Owner During A Walk

    Honestly, who steals a dog?

    The NSW police force has asked people to be on the lookout for a 14-week-old pug named Egg who was stolen from his owner on Thursday night.

    Three men armed with knives approached Egg's owner at about 10:30pm on Thursday as he was taking his pooch for a walk, police said. After demanding Egg's owner's wallet and backpack, they also helped themselves to Egg, and then ran off.

    People were understandably heartbroken by the whole situation. As Sydney headed into a three-day heatwave, many worried that Egg wouldn't receive proper care while being held captive.
