HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -

A family visiting South Florida for the holidays has lost their beloved English bulldog and they're reaching out to the community to help find him.

"My family and I are here in South Florida on what was supposed to be a little holiday getaway," Nicole Montalvo told Local10.com.

But on Dec. 26, Justice, her 2 1/2-year-old neutered male Olde English Bulldog wandered off around 11 a.m. near Funston Avenue in Hollywood.

The family has posted over 1,000 fliers and has contacted several media outlets in the area.

Sadly, the only information that has generated are bogus phone calls from people claiming to have the dog, Montalvo said.

But they continue to reach out to the community, hoping someone can help reunite them with their beloved 4-legged family member.

"We just want to make it difficult for anyone who may have taken him to walk him or be seen with him with out being noticed," Montalvo said.

Justice has a tan and white coat and was wearing a silver pull chain around his neck. He is on a special diet and needs daily medication.

If you've seen Justice, please call 407-202-3906, 407-520-2707 or 754-204-2403.

A reward is being offered for his safe return.
