Reward in dognapping grows to $1,000

The reward for Bud, the dognapped pit bull, grew to $1,000 Tuesday.

Bud was stolen from Sammie’s Friends Animal Shelter Saturday morning by a tall, skinny woman driving a white Toyota pickup. Witnesses believe the same woman had been at the shelter on Wednesday and right before closing Friday.

The approximately 9-month-old pit bull is blue in color with a white chest, is no more than 50 pounds and has been neutered. He has just had surgery and is in desperate need of his medications.

Bud already had been adopted and his new owners were driving up to pick him up, said Nevada County Sheriff’s Sgt. Guy Selleck.

“They really want the dog back,” he said. “The reward is $1,000, no questions asked.”

Anyone with information can call Selleck at 265-1471.
