Police are sniffing around for a pair of thieves who brazenly made off with a beloved family dachshund named Milkshake in the Bronx earlier this month.

The dog-nappers entered an apartment building at Westchester Avenue and Tiffany Street in Longwood on the evening of May 4 and encountered the 10-year-old weiner dog, police say, before fleeing the location with her and leaving her family devastated.

“Help us sniff ’em out & fetch ’em,” the NYPD wrote on X.

Per surveillance video, the two pooch pilferers both had their hair dyed red, one short and curly and the other long and braided. The one with braided hair was wearing a black jacket, the other a white T-shirt.
