Bereft dog owner offers $10G reward for return of beloved pooch — thief can keep the truck

by Editorial Team

Cars can be replaced. Dogs, not so much.

A Charleston, S.C. man is pleading with the thief who made off in his car with his dog inside to bring back the pooch, no questions asked — and offering a $10,000 reward.

It was chilly and rainy last Sunday just before Christmas when Ben Brengle, thinking he was doing his beloved Bella a favor, left the engine running and the dog in the pickup as he popped into Lowe’s Home Improvement store for all of three minutes to grab some lumber, he told The Post and Courier.

When he came out, the truck and dog were nowhere to be seen.

“I was two feet from the exit,” Brengle told The Post and Courier.

“She just sticks by my side, which is the hardest part, you know, that she’s out there alone,” Brengle told WCIV-TV. “She’s got to be so scared, petrified.”

Brengle has created both Instagram and Facebook accounts in his attempts to retrieve Bella, who Brengle said is “extremely skittish,” according to the Associated Press.

“Stolen with a white Chevy Silverado 2500 truck on 12/22/19 at 6:31 p.m. from out front of Lowes in North Charleston,” reads a post on a new Facebook account, Find Bella of Charleston SC.

She’s a yellow lab mix, 2 years old, weighing 40 pounds, with a “broken tail” and “pink nose,” her owner wrote on Facebook.

Brengle’s hashtags are “Find Bella” and “No Rest.”

The Instagram account “find.bella” is full of pictures of the beloved dog in various environments, sporting an array of expressions.

The North Charleston Police Department is investigating as well, Brengle said. He and police remain hopeful that Bella will be brought home.

“Bella is out there somewhere,” Brengle told The Post and Courier. “Please help by spreading the word, actively looking online, and paying attention in your own neighborhoods. There is no distance too far that we will be looking. It starts local, and will spread out over time.”

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it|
