Reward offered for stolen Durham puppy

DURHAM (WTVD) -- A Durham couple hopes a $500 reward will bring home their puppy.

Monday evening, Benita Powell returned home on from work to find their Omer Lane home had been broken into. She noticed their television was gone, two laptops, their jewelry, and their brand new puppy. The crate in the kitchen was empty.

She and her boyfriend, Cedric Satchel, had only brought little Raven home that Sunday night.

At first glance, Raven looks like a pit bull breed, but Powell and Satchel said she's actually an American Bully, a new breed crossed with a bulldog. So when she's full grown, she'll actually be a lot shorter than a pit bull.

"She's a love bug. She loves to cuddle. We did find that out in the short time we had her, and I don't want anyone to try to fight her or breed her. She's our family pet," said Powell.

"My biggest concern is her health. We just had her ears cropped. She has stitches that need to come out. They could get infected if not properly cared for," said Satchel.

They've been putting up posters with Raven's picture all over their neighborhood hoping for her safe return.

If you know anything about the crime, or know where the puppy is, call the Durham County Sheriff's Office at (919) 560-0896.
