Authorities in Southern California say two people were arrested after they allegedly tried to sell a stolen bulldog to the dog’s original owners.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1jANq8S ) the English bulldog, Gunny, was taken during a robbery Oct. 17. When the owners saw Gunny listed for sale on Craigslist last week for $2,500, they contacted the San Bernardino County sheriff’s department.
