A woman living near Las Vegas Boulevard and Pebble Road says she was robbed and pistol-whipped, and two men stole her pregnant French bulldog, Lilly.

It all happened Sunday night around 8:30. Sheila Peacock says she got a knock on her door.  That's when she says two guys asked for her son. When she said he wasn't home, she says they rushed in.  

One pushed her to ground and pistol-whipped her. The other asked where money was. She said she didn't have any, and after searching her apartment, she says they then grabbed her dog, Lilly, and ran off.

Peacock says she's especially terrified because Lilly is pregnant and close to her delivery date.  

"I'm just worried to death about her," Peacock says.

Lilly was a gift from her son, who bought the French bulldog from a breeder. She's certified purebred dating back to her great-grandparents.

Lilly quickly became part of Peacock's family.

"I just fell in love with her the first time I laid eyes on her," she says.

With Lilly now expecting a litter of puppies, the plan was for Lilly to have a C-section, and for Peacock and her son to sell the puppies to other families.

Now she's worried what will happen with Lilly in the wrong hands.

"Something that doesn't know what the hell they're doing might try and butcher the dog to get those babies out," she says.

Peacock filed a police report for robbery and kidnapping. She's pleading to get her dog back safe.

"She's a big part of a lot of people's lives, so please bring her back," Peacock says.
