Two recently engaged Clemson graduates now living in Charleston said they are offering $1,000 to anyone who can find their dog that went missing in Spartanburg over the holidays.

Maggie Rauck said her fiancé, Neil Kern, proposed in November after giving her a chocolate lab puppy with an engagement ring attached to the dog's collar.

Rauck said the couple brought the dog, who they decided to name Charlie, with them when they visited Neil's family in Spartanburg on Christmas, and then left the dog with the family while they visited other family and friends out of state.

Rauck said her future father-in-law put Charlie and the two other dogs that live at the home on Perrin Drive in the fenced backyard to use the bathroom just after noon Dec. 27, and when he went to let the dogs in a few minutes later, Charlie was gone.

"She is super sweet, with these deep blue eyes that turn golden in the light," Rauck said. "We just want to get her home safe and sound."

Rauck said her family and friends posted signs and fliers around the neighborhood as they searched for the pup.

They even launched a Facebook group called "Spartanburg/Greenville: Help us find Charlie and bring her home!"

Rauck said they are offering $1,000 reward to anyone who finds Charlie and returns her safely.

If anyone spots Charlie or a similar dog in the Spartanburg area, they are asked to call 202-460-0891.
