PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- The Humane Society of Pensacola is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever broke into the building and took a pitbull named Peppa.

Officials say Peppa was reported missing Monday morning after employees arrived at the facility and found a hole in the fence surrounding the kennel. Workers believe the dog was either taken or wandered off when thieves broke into the facility on Sunday.

The Pensacola News Journal reports that Peppa's previous owners relinquished her to the animal shelter and she's been up for adoption since May 2010.

Director Sara McCool says pitbulls are hard to place with new owners. She calls Peppa a super dog and says employees are heartbroken that she's missing.

Anyone with information should contact the Pensacola facility.

    Someone that really wanted the dog must have taken her. I have been to other shelters and the dangerous dogs are contained in separate pens.If there was a hole in her pen, then it must have been someone she knew and they knew her. Who would break into a pitbulls pen ?
