    "My wife said the dogs aren't there. I said, of course they're there.They're in the car," Patrick Orlando explained. "As soon as we went around, we saw that the window had been broken and the dogs had been taken."

    Since then, Patrick hasn't been back to work. Instead, he's been working on finding Bianco and Misha, even printing 16,000 posters.

    "More than half of them have been taken down, but I just keep going back to the same places and keep putting them up," he said. "I'm going to put up every single one of those fliers."

    They're hoping they led to the safe return of the two dogs that have left the Orlando family devastated.

    "We don't know what to do. Just help us," Jennifer Orlando said. "Just give me back my dogs. It's all we want."

    There is a $6,000 reward. If anyone has information please call 305-432-2218 or drop the dogs off at the Brickell Animal Hospital.
