Woman offers unusual reward for safe return of lost dog

A woman in Dayton, Ohio, offered up an unusual reward for the safe return of her dog who disappeared on Jan. 2, reported Monday's Dayton Daily News.

After Zoro, a husky who was rescued three years ago, slipped out of Abigail Miller's yard, she decided to offer up a case of beer and a pack of "smokes" to the person who safely returned the dog to his home.

Miller posted several fliers featuring the unique reward for her lost dog and shortly thereafter, she got the hit that was needed to bring Zoro back home.

A man phoned Miller and told her that he had seen someone walking a dog who matched the description of the dog in the flier and that person's tip led Miller to her dog; on Sunday, Zoro and Miller were reunited.

Although Miller had offered up the beer and cigarettes, the man who gave her the tip chose not to accept her unique reward.

Miller apparently offered the cigarettes and beer because it fit her budget and she hoped that it would attract attention.
