Cordele family wants dog back

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Eugene Bailey and his family in Cordele want their Jack Russell dog, Tator back.

Surveillance video from Quick Buys on Highway 300 shows three people taking the taking Monday night after it was wandering around.

While it's possible the trio took the dog because they thought it was a stray, Bailey says the group could have done more if their true intention was to keep the dog safe.

"If it was here wandering around, it had to belong to somebody real close," Bailey said. "They could have asked in the store if it belonged to anybody or anything."

Bailey's family has owned the dog for more than a month until this week. He says Tator has already left its impression on the household.

"My daughter, she has down syndrome and she has always been terrified of dogs," Bailey said. "This little dog, she's done got you know to the point where she kind of play with it."

He has reported the incident to the Warwick Police Department and the Crisp County Sheriff Office. He says he doesn't want the situation to escalate, but wants answers and his dog back.

"If I have to put a reward out to get the dog back," Bailey said. "There will be charges pressed."

The vehicle where the dog was last seen, captured by surveillance video, is a gray ford ranger pick-up truck.
