A reward of $2000 is being offered to anyone providing information leading to the recovery of a puppy stolen from the yard of a ten-year-old Memphis, TN youth.

Cyndi Nowell says her son, Nathan, still struggles with the loss of his father to an illness five years ago, and finds constant comfort in the company of his dogs. Understandably, the young child is distraught at the theft of his best friend, and as word of the incident spread over the weekend, donations poured in from across the country to help establish a substantial reward for the return of the pup.

4-month-old Yogi was stolen from his yard on May 29th. Witnesses saw the dog nappers fleeing the scene in a white 2002 Maxima.

Yogi has blue markings,one solid ear, and one striped ear. Those with knowledge of the incident or Yogi’s whereabouts are asked to call (901) 683-4973.
