Soldier's son's puppy stolen

DAVENPORT (AP) -- A puppy that a 10-year-old Davenport boy got from his father just before he deployed to Afghanistan has been stolen from his front yard.

The Blue Nose Pit Bull puppy named Caleb was taken the same day that Cameron Valle's father left for his yearlong deployment.

That's according to Cameron's mother, Gina, who says her son doesn't want to sleep or eat after the puppy's theft.

Gina Valle says two men approached the puppy as if to pet it Wednesday afternoon but instead snatched it and took off in a car.

She's asking for the puppy's safe return and says she'll buy the culprits a new one if that's what it takes.
