Koby got out of the backyard and wandered out to the front of the house after a strong wind blew the gate open.
CCTV footage from a neighbour’s house shows a black car pulling up to Ms Goudge’s front yard and two men getting out.
Ms Goudge believes the men were in the neighbourhood because one of her neighbours recently moved out and left their belongings behind which people started to take.
The footage shows a man opening the passenger door of his car and calling Koby over before taking the puppy and driving away.

Ms Goudge initially thought Koby ran away but after watching her neighbour’s camera footage she saw her puppy being stolen.
‘We have been crying and we are sick to our stomachs,’ Ms Goudge told the Geelong Advertiser.
She has been talking to all of her neighbours trying to find out if they know any information about Koby’s whereabouts.
‘I heard that a neighbour who recently left Geelong was bragging about taking Koby but we aren’t sure if this is true.’
