Two people in Southern California have been arrested after allegedly trying to sell a stolen bulldog to the dog's original owners.

The English bulldog, named Gunny, was stolen during a robbery on October 17. Just last week, his owners found him listed in a Craigslist ad for $2,500, and immediately contacted authorities.

With the help of investigators, the owners posed as prospective buyers and arranged to meet the robbery suspects in a parking lot. Once the dog was identified, deputies made the arrests.

Jamill Slaughter, 21, and Carla Martinez, 19, could face charges including possession of stolen property, say officials.
