David Wilk and Charlie Gurion, who live on the 3100 block of North Sacramento and Belmont in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago, just want their two French bulldogs returned to them after their home was burglarized on Tuesday morning reports NBC Chicago.

The couple had stepped out to a local coffee house when someone broke into their home and stole computers and other electronics. The home was ransacked and the front door was left open.
