A distraught Lauren Cox is pleading with burglars to return her 9-pound Maltese Shih-Tzu named Zoe who was stolen when Cox's house was broken into earlier this week.

Zoe was taken Monday afternoon when Cox's Livermore house was burglarized in broad daylight. When Cox's fiance came home that evening, he found all of the doors had been unlocked and Zoe was gone. Cox had left the 2-year-old dog in the bathroom with her bed behind a small safety gate.

Although the gate was still up after the burglary, Zoe was gone.

"She's just like a child to us and we'd do anything to have her back," Cox reportedly said.

Little Zoe was last wearing a pink collar with brown polka dots, but no identification tag.

Besides the dog, the burglars took Cox's jewelry, a laptop, camera, television, and some personal documents. On Tuesday, Cox learned some of her property had been recovered in a Hayward parking lot.

"Who would take somebody's dog? I mean she's like a family member," Cox said.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
