SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A southwest Missouri man has made an unusual offer to the thief who stole his SUV: Return my dog, and I’ll give you the vehicle’s title.

KYTV reports Doug Clark, of Marshfield, was making a brief transaction at a Springfield business last week when another customer walked outside and drove off in his Nissan Pathfinder.

Clark had left his family’s beloved dog a young pug named Dugout in a crate inside the SUV with the engine and the air conditioning running.

Clark’s family is offering a $2,000 reward and spreading the word on Facebook. And Clark says the offer to trade the vehicle’s title for Dugout is serious. The family just wants the pug back home.
