A Florida man is offering his truck as a reward for the return of his lost dog.

The truck has 243,000 miles on the odometer, according to owner James O’Sickey. 

O'Sickey said he came home for lunch on Wednesday and could not find Buddy Boy. He thinks Buddy Boy may have hopped a fence at his home around 1 p.m.

O’Sickey’s mother called local animal shelters and went door-to-door, but they have not been able to find the dog.

O'Sickey said he is offering his 2002 Chevy Silverado in exchange for Buddy Boy's return.

“The truck is replaceable. The dog is not,” O’Sickey said.

O’Sickey says the pit bull mix is friendly and is usually right by his side. And if you don’t want the truck, he said a reward worth more than $5,000 is up for grabs. Most of the money, he said, was offered by strangers.

“Not accepting the reward isn’t possible. The reward will be given no matter what,” O’Sickey said.
