$6,000 French bulldog stolen during Norcross home burglary, cops say

Channel 2's Christian Jennings reports.

A gun, $300 in cash and a beloved — and expensive — Merle French bulldog were stolen from a woman’s home in Norcross, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The dog, a 4-month-old named Fendi, was a gift to Shavonne Tucker’s 11-year-old son, one that Tucker said she paid $6,000 for. Now she’s offering $2,000 as a reward for the returned pooch.

“She follows you everywhere,” Tucker told Channel 2. “She would go to sleep with you. She was very lovable. She was actually like a second child.”

French bulldogs can sell for anywhere from $1,400 to upwards of $8,000 from breeders, according to Adopt a Pet.

According to the Gwinnett County police report, the dog was at the Langhorn Way home July 19 when Tucker’s boyfriend, Ernest McKee, left the house around midnight, but it was missing when he returned with Tucker an hour later. A bedroom window was open and the light had been left on, though McKee remembers turning it off.

McKee told authorities nothing was missing besides the firearm, cash and Fendi, who was valued at $3,000 in the police report.
