OSHAWA, Ont. — Durham Region police say two people are facing charges after allegedly stealing seven puppies from an apartment in Oshawa, Ont.

Officers say a woman reported a break-in at her apartment on Sept. 18.

She alleged seven bull mastiff puppies, who were just two-and-a-half-weeks old at the time, were stolen from the home.
