A man whose dog and puppies were stolen from a farm in New Forest says he feels like someone has ripped his arm off.
Working dog Wish was stolen along with her litter on Tuesday 1 March. Five puppies from another litter were also taken during the theft.
Two of those have been found and returned but 13 puppies are still missing.
Wish's owner, retired farmer Patrick Langdown said, "Since I retired I wanted to get more into my dogs, and it feels as though someone has ripped your arm off.
"Losing her, she isn't a pet dog, she is a working dog, but she is a best friend to me and there isn't a day I don't think about her and I'm not concerned about what has happened to her and the babies.
"The puppies were too young to be moved, so the outcome of those is looking pretty bleak but what I wouldn't give to get Wish back.
"I just pray that somebody somewhere must know something."
