A $4,000 reward is being offered by the pet owners of a dog taken during a burglary in Pleasanton on Oct. 8.

15-year-old Cynthia Castronovo, who owns Holly, wrote:
"They stole my best friend and our loved pet Holly. She is a five year old Pug who is the most sweetest and gentle pet anyone could ever know. I miss her so much and my family including myself are very distraught over our loss."
Pet owner Jeff Castronovo is offering a $4,000 reward for Holly's safe return. If you would like to donate to the fund to help bring Holly back, you can donate to the Bank of America in Pleasanton.
