PHOENIX -- Phoenix police said a family returned home to find their residence trashed and their small dog fatally stabbed.

Police said the suspect or suspects involved in Wednesday's break-in found a sword in the house near 59th Avenue and Dobbins Road and used it to repeatedly stab the 3-year-old Shih Tzu.

The dog was in its kennel at the time, and police said he posed no threat.

Police said the suspect or suspects stole electronic equipment and clothes, punched holes in walls and dumped liquids from the refrigerator around the house.
