Our dog Bo was wrongfully given away. A short version of what happened is this. We had an agreement with a friend that we had trusted. She used to dog sit for us and we never had any issues with her. We had 2 weeks to find a house to rent and most places are either breed restricted or do not want large dogs. The place we found allowed dogs but the property manager mentioned no large dogs. This is when our "friend" said she would house bo temp until we could find a new place this year or get the landlord to agree. I told her anything bo needs we will cover any and all costs. She agreed to it all. Well we moved the end of Feb 2013, she took Bo feb 11. I kept asking her how he was doing and such and to make plans to see him. She agreed. It took us about a month or so to get moved and settled in. I still kept in contact with her. The end of april i had asked her to send me pictures of our dog in which she said her camera broke it was being fixed. But reassured me he was great and we could come see him when she was not working. Well on may 18 she told my husband he could come see him and to his surprise she dodged him. Then admitted what she had done. My husband went to the clinic to go get Bo and thats when they said he was adopted. I fell hard to the floor hysterical. I ran to animal services who had no record of him. I called the clinic which told me AS had picked Bo up april 26 and gave me a fake chip# saying he was registered to this friend. I wanted all documents from this clinic which they gave me the run around with and one employee offered a statement since she was there when he was dropped off. Well it all came down to me speaking with the owner of the clinic. She was very rude told me she gave our dog to her client because he was deemed abandon.She never scanned him for his chip because she said this friend said she was his owner. I told her she had no proof of owning Bo! And that she neglected on her part to scan our dog for his chip. Our dog was dropped off with no collar leash or his tags which this friend took off of him. The owner got very nasty with me and proceeded to tell me i was not her priority and i was not allowed to call her anymore because she is not speaking to me about it.
