SAN DIEGO -- A 5-month-old English bulldog reported stolen from a pet day care facility has been returned to its owners by "an anonymous male," the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said.

The dog, named Schroeder, had wandered away from its owners in San Marcos. A passerby found the dog and took it to a nearby day care facility, Dogtopia.

Then, for reasons unexplained, another person came to the faciity on March 19 and claimed the dog was his. He was caught on security camera leaving with the animal.

San Diego County Crime Stoppers offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Dogtopia added another $1,000.

The dog was brought to its owners this afternoon by "an anonymous male," possibly due to the large amount of media attention, the Sheriff's Department said.
