TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Hillsborough County Sheriff's detectives are searching for two men who stole a French Bulldog at gunpoint.

Officials say 27-year-old Derek McComber was walking his dog, named Bueller, on Saturday in Tampa when two men in a Honda Civic pulled up.

The men asked McComber what kind of dog he had, and when he replied, one of the men said "I'm taking it." One of the men in the car showed McComber a gun and scooped Bueller in his arms, then drove away.

Authorities say the suspects were driving a gray car and were both white men wearing hoodies and dark pants. Bueller is 25-pounds, mostly black, with a white belly and paws.
