SAN JOSE . (AP) — A little girl is offering all the money in her piggy bank to add to a $6,000 reward for the return of her puppy taken in a burglary.

Michael Mabanag, the father of 10-year-old Marissa Mabang, says his daughter offered the contents of her piggy bank because she "just wants her doggie back."

Electronics, purses, and bicycles were taken in the burglary, as well as the family's 6-month-old Yorkie-Shih tzu mix, or "Shrike" named Meeker.

Besides the piggy bank money, San Jose's police and firefighters' unions, as well as the office of San Jose City Councilman Ash Kalra, have pooled their funds for the $6,000 reward.
