Johannesburg - Vaal Rand police are searching for four men following a house robbery at Hartebeesfontein at De Deur, south of Johannesburg.
Captain Shado Mashobane said four armed men stormed into a house after the owner - Susan Venter, 49 - who was with her family at the time, opened the door to let her dog out on Wednesday at about 21:00.
"The men armed with 9mm pistols went into the house demanding cellphones, jewellery and cash."
Mashobane said two shots were fired when the dog tried to attack the robbers but no one was injured.
"The suspects ran away, disappearing into the darkness, along with the items and a mere R150. Venter estimated the items to be worth R4 500," he said.
