CLEVELAND: A missing dog in Cleveland has been returned by a woman who got a $1,000 cash reward and says she had purchased the 5-year-old Maltese/Shih Tzu mix for $150.

Maverick, who had been missing for a week, was returned Wednesday to Kelly Durkota by a woman who wanted to remain anonymous. The dog disappeared while Durkota's boyfriend was dog-sitting and left it out of sight for a few moments.

The owner put up 800 search handbills and asked homeless people in Cleveland to watch for the dog.
