Thief Steals Dog, But Leaves a Note Explaining Why?!
The thought of someone stealing another person’s dog is more than just upsetting. A dog becomes a part of the family. Your dog being stolen is akin to a family member being kidnapped so to imagine the thief justifying their actions, saying they did because you weren’t taking good enough care of your dog, just seems absurd. And yet, it happened to the Perez family.
The whole family, Adriana Perez and her three daughters were in the house when their Husky, Aspen, was taken.
"I looked out the window, he wasn't there!" said one of Adriana's daughters. "I started crying like crazy."
But as unreal as your dog being stolen is, this story gets even stranger - the dognapper actually left a note! In it they explain that dogs are pack animals and need to be around other dogs and humans, not locked in a cage. The person continues to explain their reasoning. The very last paragraph adds even more salt to the wound by saying,
“Therefore please know that your dog is going to a place where he will get the love, attention and veterinary care every dog deserves and will never have to live outside in the extreme cold or heat again.”
The family has posted Missing Dog signs up all over the neighborhood in hopes a kind soul will help them bring their go back home. Adriana says she took immaculate care of her dog. In fact, he was more than a family dog to her, he was like the “son she never had.”
Further, following an anonymous report of neglect, Berrien County Animal Control had actually checked up on Aspen earlier this year. Were the dognapper's allegations well-founded? Not according to director Grimes,"Absolutely no issues, Aspen was in good condition. Upon checks, Aspen had food and lots of water."
One large sign is plopped in front of their yard addressing the dog napper. It reads "Please bring back our dog you stole."
I hope the family finds their dog! No matter what the kidnapper thought about the dog’s condition, it’s illegal to steal someone’s pet.
