A devastating realization for a Coweta County firefighter and his wife after their home was burglarized and their two puppies were stolen.

Like many pet owners, Taylor and Keri Robinson consider their dogs to be a part of their family. That is why they are offering a reward for the safe return of their two pups.

Taylor Robinson works at Station No. 7 in Coweta County, serving his community as a firefighter. He and his wife Keri met FOX 5’s Doug Evans at the station to talk about their lost puppies, cruelly taken during that Thanksgiving Day burglary.

The Robinsons are newlyweds and they were celebrating their first Thanksgiving as a married couple by visiting relatives last Thursday. It was late that night when they received word that burglars had broken into their Coweta County home. Their dog crate was empty. Four-month-old Odin and Athena had been taken. They were among the few items thieves stole.

News of Coweta County firefighter’s loss has spread quickly on social media. But nearly a week later, Odin and Athena are still missing. The couple has offered a $500 reward for their safe return.

Odin and Athena are what’s known as blue pits. they are four-month-old pit bulls and they have really distinctive markings.

Odin has a white chest and on the back of his neck is a white mark.

Athena has an even more interesting marking. On the back of her neck is this white arrow.

The couple hopes whoever took the dogs will bring them back or if anyone has seen the dogs, to contact authorities. Anyone who has information which helps locate the puppies is asked to contact the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office. Again, the family is offering a $500 reward.

The couple is asking anyone who has information to call the Coweta County Sheriff's Office.
