A couple in Telangana's Karimnagar, who lost their pet German Shepherd dog, around 40 days ago, have offered a Rs 20,000 cash reward to those who can provide information.
Thambi, as the German Shepherd is called, was bought from Hyderabad around two years ago and was treated like a child by the couple.
Speaking to The New Indian Express, the man said:
"It went out early in the morning as usual to attend natureās call but never returned"
The owners have also advertised about the missing dog in local channels, circulated his picture on Whatsapp groups and even put up a video on Youtube.
As a last resort, they have now announced a Rs 20,000 reward for anyone who can find Thambi.
