Stolen Bulldog Goes Up for Sale on Craigslist

Finding out your stolen dog is up for sale online is bad, but finding out your neighbor is the one selling the pet is worse.

Last month, Gunny, a six-year-old English bulldog from San Bernandino, Calif., disappeared from his backyard, his owner searched for the dog but couldn’t find him and they were surprised when they saw pictures of the dog up for sale on Craigslist. The sellers wanted $2,500 for the pet but what was more shocking was finding out who the sellers where, Gunny’s own neighbors.


According to CBS Los Angeles, Gunny’s whereabouts where learned when a friend of the pet owner spotted the pictures online. With the help of police deputies, the friend posed as an interested party and contacted the sellers.

The thief merchants were a couple who lived near Gunny’s house. After meeting the prospective buyer who identified the dog, police moved in and the dog nappers were arrested and charged with felony possession of stolen property.

Gunny is now back home with his rightful owner, who says she will not be letting Gunny out of her sight.

  1. so happy that the dog is home and I hope they throw the book at the fiends that took him in the first place. Those people are not human….they are demonic >:(

  2. That is so horrible. I cannot imagine the pain of having that happen. Like someone doing it to your child! What jerks!!!!!

  4. My childhood dog – also a bulldog was stolen right from my yard. It was the saddest day. Her name was Chunk. I always hope she was given a good life because she was the best dog ever! So happy this dog is back with the owner. Xx

  5. Takes all kinds to make a world , just happy the morons were caught & the puppy is safe at home ! Now Craigslist needs to stop selling animals as they mightbfall into the wrong hands !

  6. Oh that’s criminal behavior by the neighbor. What a terrible neighbor that dog’s owner has. They should have arrested the neighbor if they didn’t and happy that the owner noticed it and got her dog back. It seams to me the dog owner had a dog hating neighbor and that’s why the evil neighbor did it. The dog owner should move if the neighbor doesn’t to live in new area where they like dogs.
