TAMPA, Florida -- The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office had a bright spot during its day Wednesday with the return of its lost cattle dog, "Doc."

Owner Lowell Cain was reunited with his dog during a press conference outside of the Hillsborough Co. Sheriff's office along N. Falkenburg Road in Tampa.

Sean Ricciardi found the cattle dog and spent the last several days trying to find the owner through an animal service, but it was closed on weekends and President's Day.

"Once I called animal services this morning, I looked all over Craigslist, and we found the posting and we found his face and the picture of him and it was exactly ... it was him," said Ricciardi.

Ricciardi does not own a television, so he did not see all the media coverage surrounding the search for Doc.

Doc went missing on Saturday when he jumped from a moving trailer going 60 miles per hour down I-75 near the Fruitville Road exit in Sarasota.

On Tuesday, the sheriff's office upped the reward to $1,000 in hopes of finding the dog, which Ricciardi will now receive.
