CHICAGO (CBS) – Two missing French bulldogs have been returned to a Chicago couple.

The dogs were spotted by a dad and daughter in Humboldt Park Tuesday night and safely returned Wednesday.

It all started Tuesday morning when someone broke into the couple’s Avondale home. The two French bulldogs, Rue and Pierre are nowhere to be found. The pet owners are understandably worried, but especially concerned because Rue is deaf, and needs medication.

David Wilk and his husband Charlie Gurion left the house for coffee around 9 a.m. Tuesday. Three hours later they returned to the 3100 block of Sacramento and the locks were left in shambles, and Rue and Pierre were missing. Wilk and Gurion don’t know if their pets were stolen, or ran away through an open door.

“We noticed that there was all this broken stuff at our front door, and at first I thought it was something from the countertop or something, and then I realized that the door had been kicked in,” Wilk said.

The couple’s two Yorkshire terriers were still there, but no Pierre or Rue. The owners say it was as if they’ve lost their “children.”
