A desperate search is underway to find a puppy stolen from a house in Victoria.

Luna, a 16-week-old staffy, was stolen from her owner’s home on the Mornington Peninsula, south of Melbourne, on Saturday.

Her owner, Clint Hammill, posted on Facebook the pup "is only little and she will be incredibly afraid".

She went missing while he was not at home.

Mr Hammill described her as black with brindle markings and a white chest. Her left hind leg is white.
