Josh Wood said he came back from work one day to find his dog stolen from his yard. He said his collar was gently removed from the rare blue Pit Bull's neck. The 5-month-old pup had been part of the family for 3 months and he said his 3-year-old son grew attached to him. Word spread that people spotted the Pit Bull on Manor Street in Lancaster city. Wood and a team of supporters from Two Pups Pastries, a local business, hit the streets handing out flyers all Saturday.

"We know that if this happened to our dog, you know we'd want someone to do something for us as well," said local business owner Amy Risko.

Wood is offering a $500 reward for the pup to be returned safely, no questions asked.

"It's not even about the money that I paid for him or that I'm offering, he's a member of our family, and there's not a value on that, I just want him back for my son and my family," said owner Josh Wood.

The Pit Bull's ears have not been clipped and his tail is long.

Wood has suspicion the dog was stolen for fighting or for breeding.

OK this is a prime example of why you should not leave your dog unattended in the yard, especially while you are not even home. It is also an example of why one should research a dog’s breed before they get one. If the owner had done this, he would know there are probably ten dogs just like his at the local shelter; there is no such thing as a rare pit bull, especially a rare blue pit bull. In addition, I wonder why the article emphasizes the tail is long. It is supposed to be long per breed standard. It is amazing that it is automatically assumed the dog was stolen for fighting purposes. Why can’t the dog just be stolen because the owner has no clue what the hell he is doing; in addition, he left his 5-month-old puppy unattended while at work. Anyone, even my grandfather, could probably take the dog right out of the yard just because the dog is real cute and little. Ignorant people and stupid news articles never cease to amaze me. I do hope this person finds his baby dogs though. I hope he is found safe and sound and if he is not then I hope someone who will not leave him outside unattended for hours has him and will give him a better life than he had.
