Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a reward in an effort to help reunite the owner and his dog.
A 7-year-old pug named Guido was taken inadvertently when his owner's car was stolen and Donald Murray wants him back, no questions asked. To help motivate that effort, Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a reward up to $3,000 for his return.
On May 29, 2018, at approximately 8:30 a.m., Donald Murray was working at Dibbs Commercial Center, 15499 N Dale Mabry Highway, cleaning the parking lot. As is their custom, Guido came to work with him and was sleeping in the car with the windows and doors open. Mr. Murray noticed an unknown white male with short hair and numerous tattoos get in his 1997 black Dodge Stratus and drive away.
On 05/30/18, the car was recovered abandoned by the St. Petersburg Police Department at 11601 Roosevelt Boulevard but Guido was missing and has not been located. To date, Guido is still missing and we want to help reunite these friends.
