This story is all over the place today because it sounds so awesome. But, as happens so often today, most people seem not to have read the story.
A woman lost her two dogs and offered an award of a case of beer and pack of cigarettes as a reward. After finding one of her dogs at a shelter she got a tip from someone at a local sub shop because of the award flier.
HOWEVER, the folks who had the dog intended to keep it, and only when confronted did they give the dog back. No one received the award of a case of beer.
