On Tuesday, burglars made off with an iPad, Macbook, and jewelry from Barbara August's New Jersey home. They also took her puppy Pepper, a black, gray, and white schnauzer-poodle mix. August is, understandably, devastated.

"I'm devastated — I keep thinking I'm seeing her," she told Channel 4. "They could have locked her in the bathroom, locked her in her crate, and done whatever they wanted, but why did they have to take my dog — she's my baby." This proves that New Jersey burglars are worse than any other kind.

Police are still investigating the incident, and they think they've traced the electronics to a neighborhood in New Brunswick. The thieves broke into August's home while she and her husband were out.
