BOSTON (WHDH) — The Animal Rescue League of Boston is offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the return of a dog taken from the shelter last week.

Nick, a 3-year-old pit bull, was taken from the shelter by a potential adopter on April 8. The shelter said the man spoke with staff and left a valid driver’s license so he could take Nick for a walk. The man and Nick never returned.

The suspect was described as a man with a dark complexion standing about 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was last seen wearing black pants, a blue hooded sweatshirt, a tan jacket, a baseball cap, and glasses.

Anyone with information about Nick or the suspect is urged to call the ARL at 617-226-5610.
