$500 reward offered for return of American Bulldog puppy

Zoey missing from area near 216th and Old Cutler

Zoey, a 5-month-old America Bulldog puppy, escaped from her home in Cutler Bay Thursday night while running after her German shepherd brother.

She was last seen near 216th and Old Cutler.

The shepherd returned a few minutes later, but Zoey is still missing.

Her owners have searched for her, posted fliers, and contacted anyone they think could help.

Zoey is described as the "sweetest and friendliest dog in the world."

She is my life," says her owner, Misty Basford. "Please, I'm so afraid someone will hurt her. I can offer $500 and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get her back."

Zoey is all white with a brown/tan patch around one eye. She is about 30 to 35 pounds.

"I cannot express how painful this is for me," Misty said. "Please, please help me. Thank you so much."

If you have seen Zoey, or know where she is, please call Misty at 310-663-7564 or e-mail mistybasford@gmail.com.
