The Raleigh paper this AM reports a shelter adoption day at a local Petco had a dog grabbed by a young man who then ran away.
There is a $1000 reward up for grabs.
I think that they are missing the point. They had to home the dog, so somebody did. I don't see the crime here.

I don't see the crime here.

It's called theft. Theft means taking something that doesn't belong to you without permission regardless of "good" intent. This dog is now going to going to someone who has not been vetted properly. There's no telling what this person's intent was-does he want a pet? Is he going to abuse it? Nope, no good here. What he did was illegal and immoral. Do I sound harsh? Don't care.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

If it was stolen to train fighting dogs then it will have a very short life of pain and misery. Not everybody has good intentions.

I agree with you. It's just plain wrong what they did. If they had good intent, they would not have done that.

Probably fell in love with the dog and couldn't afford to buy it.

A thief steels a dog and you chuckle? Guess you are not a dog lover.

I'm going to think happy thoughts and pray the guy will sell the dog to someone because he needs drug money.... I just can't wrap my head around using an ordinary dog to train fighters.... :-(

The lab mix (Tanner)that currently lives with us was a rescue from Kentucky. When the shelter got him, he needed over 100 stitches to his front legs and snout. Someone must have used him as fighting bait and dumped him when he got tore up.
Tanner loves people but it is not safe to have him around other dogs. He goes crazy and tries to attack them. We solve this by keeping him away from the other dogs. He is a sweet dog except for that problem.

I doubt it will be trained for fighting. But, we don't know the breed of dog. A Chihuahua won't be used for fighting. A Pitbull is a different story.

There were probably adoption fees, license, etc. associated with the dog before it went to a new owner.
Yes, it is theft.

Do experimental labs buy dogs?
