Surveillance video shows a man reaching over a gate to steal a dog from a Bergen Beach backyard on Easter Sunday.

Dr. Anatoly Bartov says it took a man 48 seconds to take Oz, an Alaskan pocket huskie, from the property.

The Bartov family was not home at the time and says the theft seemed planned. Bartov is offering a reward for any information that will help get the dog back.
