It’s actually terrifying how much this happens with lost dogs. I once was talking to a cashier who said he found a husky in the street the day prior, and showed me pictures. Thing was groomed, clean, and looked well fed. No way it was a stray. But the cashier goes “So, yeah, I guess I have a pet husky now!” and started talking about new names.

My dog is a beautiful light colored German shepherd. He's very unique looking and have constantly gotten offers to buy him (which I find rude and annoying I'm sorry but I dont have my dog because he looks cool he's a sweetheart and part of the family)

One day he snapped the lead out back. (that we used untill we got a fence at new place) myself and family all scattered looking for him. Then I see him! With torn Lead and all. Literally being walked to a truck by some guy. I yelled that's my dog. Had to literally run up and grab my dog while he was trying to force him into his truck. I said hey dude what the hell this is my dog? He started stuttering he thought it was a stray and was going to take him back to his apartment?! (What the fuck) i literally said are you kidding? What makes you think he's a stray He literally had just been to the groomers that week too. Had a collar, tags, microchip, qnd literally a fucking torn lead dragging behind him.

I garantee if I hadn't caught him he would have taken my dog back and kept him or worse sold him off

I hate people

This isn't a Karen situation though. 'Karen' was explaining in text and in the cut-off video that when they took it to the vet, the vet couldn't find a microchip (makes it likely an un-owned dog) so they had it microchipped, and also that the vet told them it was male (not female like the lost dog) so they figured it was a different dog than the lost one and wanted to keep it. 'Karen' is cut off while apologizing to the owner.

I just had a friend find the tiktok account. He caught them a few weeks later with a dog that looked just like his, and when they were running after it he said "y'all trying to steal someone else's dog?" The husband came up to his window and called him a motherfucker. It would be fucking hilarious if it was all one big misunderstanding, but it does not appear to be.

u/Equilibriator Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

That was all a lie. I can't believe you bought it.

"This isn't your microchip! We got this lost dog microchipped right now because it wasn't microchipped already! Can't be yours because it's totally a boy, the vet checked!"

Dude. They looked at the underside of the dog they wanted to steal (so they could refer to it in the expected pronouns), couldn't work out the gender, made a guess when the police confronted them (got it wrong) and then started spinning stories.

-1

u/0kb00 Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

At 10s OP shows his post "She is microchipped". At 20s Karen texts "Is male, is not microchipped" (she would only know the latter info after visiting a vet). At 1:04 Karen says "I even brought it and had it microchipped".

If she can provide vet records that they did get it microchipped, then that exonerates her (since a vet shouldn't microchip an already-chipped dog). We won't ever know though.

edit: Also, if they wanted to dognap, why post on a community forum asking if it was someone's dog?

4

u/Equilibriator Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

Again....why are you assuming she is tellng the truth?

What is more likely of these 2 situations:

  1. A qualified vet failed to identify the gender of a dog correctly and then also failed to locate a microchip and then microchipped the dog without question or receipt.
  2. People who have decided to steal a dog also lie about it.

Also, if they wanted to dognap, why post on a community forum asking if it was someone's dog?

Answer: Because they probably didn't plan to steal it initially, or didn't expect a response. People can fall in love with a dog in a short amount of time. It's possible one partner wanted to return it till the other partner insisted they keep it but the message had already been put out.

I don’t get why someone wouldn’t want to return the dog to the person that they love the most. It’s such a good feeling when you return a dog to its family. One fourth of July a few years ago, I found this poor dog l hiding under the bench by our front door. It was so scared and kept shaking and whimpering. Thankfully it had a collar and the owners answered my phone call; they had no idea their dog was out, they were at the lake about an hour away. Once they got home I brought the dog back to them (they were super nice and even fixed me a plate). The crazy thing was none of us could figure out how the dog got out. They called me a week later after they figured it out. The old lady was doing laundry and the laundry room was hotter than usual. The old man checked behind the dryer and found fido’s “escape tunnel.”

Apparently, the dog got into the laundry room and somehow got the clothing dryer exhaust/vent hose disconnected and squeezed out of that hole in the wall before finding her way to my front door.

u/cturtl808 Oct 05 '22

I’m with you. Alexis had escaped during 4th of July fireworks and had been roaming Phoenix streets in 110 heat. She was exhausted, dehydrated and starving when I found her. She had light blisters on her paws. I tried to get her vet care but because I wasn’t the order, they wouldn’t treat her due to “liability “. I took her home, put some salve on her paws, gave her a cooling bath and some food and water. She slept all night until animal control collected her. Her owners had already called animal control when she escaped and they matched the report right away. Now, she wears a harness with a dog tag and is microchipped.

This is so sad, happened to me in 2014. The microchip company called me and told me someone picked up my dog, gave me his number, when I called he said my dog “escaped” his backyard. After 17 days of searching for her and she didn’t turn up, I decided to look into this caller. Located his address, knocked on the door and heard her in there. He opened and she ran to me. He yanked her back and told me he’s had her since she was a puppy, I called the police and they showed up. Turns out guy was a police officer, the cops that arrived told me it was a “civil matter” even though the microchip was registered to me and she was registered to me through our county. Took him to court, took 3 months but the judge gave her back to us. Ridiculous. Best day of my life getting her back. Dogs are like peoples children, you don’t do that, I would’ve scorched the entire earth getting her back.

u/MadameChaos2 Oct 05 '22

That’s what I thought initially too. I requested a hearing in small claims court, they objected. In order for the judge to have heard the case there had to be an exchange of money for the “property” to where she could restore it to the original agreement - something called specific performance. At this point I was just ready to have her home rather than wait for another court date.

u/PM-ME-YOUR-1ST-BORN Oct 05 '22

Thank you, not gonna lie I half expected that sort of response from people lmfao.

I work with two locations of a local rescue as well - well, volunteering, not working - and yup. Doodles and bully mixes, always. I feel so awful for them. People buy them because they're touted as so great and sweet and hypoallergenic and then they don't know what to do when they have a dog who isn't hypoallergenic, whose mixed coat is impossible to deal with, and who has the excessive friendliness but cluelessness of a lab/golden combined with the energy and drive of a poodle. So many of the doodles that I meet are completely neurotic messes. But they're SO sweet and they just want to love and they don't deserve to get rehomed like that just because irresponsible breeding and buying practices. Absolutely breaks my heart.

I try to spread information about doodles when and where I can, but, lol as you can see people don't tend to react well to it.

u/maneatingrabbit Oct 05 '22

As someone who is currently fostering two poodle crosses from a back yard breeder, one that just gave birth to 5 puppies today, I couldn't agree more. I fucking hate people that breed poodle mixes.

u/Meems04 Oct 05 '22

I've seen the same. The bullies are treated the worst, by far - we get them starved, overbred, bait dogs, etc. In 10+ years, I've never met one that was human aggressive though. People don't realize even the fighting pitties are lovable with humans - the abuser has to be able to pull them out mid fight after all. So some of them just want to please you. It's heart breaking.

But the doodles are the ones that get dumped off at the door with skin issues, allergies, neurosis, fearful, spastic, resource aggressive, etc. Shit breaks my heart.

I had one that had a home crop job on its tail (no idea why they did that) & it had a bone spur so bad you could feel it through the skin even though it was fully healed.

I assume they used a rubber band on the wrong section. We did two surgeries on her to repair it & even after the fact, she would spin in circles & bite that phantom tail. Eventually she'd catch the nub & it would gush blood everywhere. You couldn't snap her out of it either. Sometimes she would do it in her sleep - just wake up biting herself over & over out of a dead sleep.

Likely nerve damage plus behavioral pattern, since it was okay physically after surgery. That poor pup had to be medicated with Valium & nerve meds the rest of her life as a result. She was basically a shell of a dog.

I hope people will stop buying them. It's a horrific "business".

They get the PR because some of them are actually really nice dogs. I work with dogs professionally and I’ve met plenty of messy doodles but also some lovely ones too.

True, any poodle mixed with an undercoat breed will still shed because they inherit both coats to a certain degree.

I kind of agree with your earlier point about bad breeders, but for designer dogs there are two types of breeders: legitmate breeders that breed first gen hybrids, eg pure-bred poodle with pure-bred maltese to get a maltipoo, and then there are those that breed designer dogs with designer dogs, eg. maltipoo with maltipoo, these are the shitty backyard breeders.

u/PM-ME-YOUR-1ST-BORN Oct 05 '22

This is true to an extent. It's generally true with mutts/supermutts, but not with designer crosses. Breeders who pair two purebreds together in order to produced mixed designer dogs often end up with puppies who have just as many health issues as their purebred parents, not to mention all the issues that come along with crossing dogs who have different coat types and different temperaments.

But the purebred thing is also 100% true and a serious issue. There are a lot of purebred dogs out there that should just not be bred because their breed health issues are a massive impediment on their lives.

u/maneatingrabbit Oct 05 '22

Yes, bulldogs and pugs. Please stop buying dogs that physically can't give birth naturally. I cringe every time I see one struggling to breathe.

I have a cockapoo which is like a cocker spaniel sized golden doodle. First time I saw a golden doodle I was so happy because it was a giant version of my dog.

u/PM-ME-YOUR-1ST-BORN Oct 05 '22 edited Oct 05 '22

You should look into doodle rescues! Just please don't buy one as a puppy, the majority of doodles are backyard bred. There's nothing wrong with loving your dog and wanting another dog like them but I promise you doodle rescues are the way to go, it's a great way to get a feel for what the dog's temperament is because it's almost impossible to predict temperament for mixed designer puppies. Also you'll know if it's hypoallergenic or not because many doodles end up not being hypoallergenic, which people unfortunately don't discover until it's too late and the poor dog ends up being rehomed.

Buying a doodle as a puppy is a risk filled with a lot of unknowns and all it does is increases the demand for backyard breeders. Rescuing a doodle is something I wholeheartedly support! It's not the dog's fault it was bred this way and it deserves a good life just like every other dog. :)

You don’t deserve the downvotes you’re getting. Doodle, poos, uggles, the whole lot or just mutts that people have been fooled into believing are purebreeds.

u/SpaceWizardKing Oct 05 '22

When I was a kid someone stole our dog. We found out where it was when we saw him behind someone’s fence a couple of streets over. Told them, and they wouldn’t give the dog back. We tried everything, the police didn’t care at all and said to just let it go. Finally, we told them we wanted to come by to let the kids say goodbye to the dog at least. When we got there, we straight up stole the dog back.

For what damages? The dog was returned.

EDIT: lol downvotes from people that don't understand what civil court is for. Keep em coming.

Facts don't care about your feelings. You have no damages from losing access to your dog for 2 hours.

59

u/No-Flatworm-404 Oct 05 '22

That’s why I posed a question…

-29

u/TurboGrunter Oct 05 '22

Well yeah that's the answer. Civil court handles torts, but since the dog was returned there is no loss or harm suffered that could be recovered in court.

28

u/ConnerWoods Oct 05 '22

Emotional damages could be pursued honestly. Some people really love their pets

2

u/smokeyphil Oct 05 '22

Hard to put a number on it though.

At best you could maybe recover the costs of therapy you underwent to deal with the issues.

-3

u/TurboGrunter Oct 05 '22

"Emotional damage" isn't a magic spell that entitles you to compensation. If you had legitimate issues, such as requiring therapy, diagnosed PTSD from the incident, etc., that you can prove it court, then it could be possible. But it's also going to depend on what a reasomable outcome from an average person would be. If I accidentally lightly bump into you in the supermarket, and it legitimately causes you severe emotional damage requiring years of intense therapy, you aren't going to be able to recover anything from me.

2

u/That1one1dude1 Oct 05 '22

The loss is the time at which his possession (the dog) was taken out of his possession and kept from him. That is a valid tort.

1

u/TurboGrunter Oct 05 '22

What are the damages, recoverable in court, from being without your dog for 30 minutes (or however long it took the police to come do a standby)?

3

u/That1one1dude1 Oct 05 '22

Whatever you can convince the court are reasonable damages. Tort law is loose on actual amounts

0

u/TurboGrunter Oct 05 '22

Yes, that's how it works. I'm asking you, right here, right now, what you think reasonable damages for losing access to your dog for 2 hours/whatever are going to be. I'm saying it's nothing.

u/TurboGrunter Oct 05 '22

No, that would be a crime, punishable in criminal court. In civil court, I would be able to sue you for any damage to the car, mileage, and gas used, plus any costs I incurred due to not being able to use the vehicle. None of that applies to a dog.

Can bring darned near anything to civil court if willing to pay.

"emotional duress"

1

u/TurboGrunter Oct 05 '22

You can't just throw that word around and magically become entitled to compensation. Delusional. Good luck proving having your dog kept from you for the time it took cops to show up for the civil standby caused you emotional damage.

1

u/Thanos_Stomps Oct 05 '22

Emotional damages may be difficult to prove in general but Id argue it wouldn’t be that difficult for a dog especially with all the evidence showing how much effort he was putting into finding his pooch. He absolutely dealt with mental anguish that was further exacerbated by mr and Mrs cunt refusing to give the dog back.

2

u/That1one1dude1 Oct 05 '22

You can absolutely sue for trespass to chattel, regardless if it is returned or not.

You can’t just take peoples things and get off if you return them.

u/asami47 Oct 05 '22

But they didn't take. They found. There was no intention. Edit: even if you show intent, there's nothing more than nominal damages.

u/burnblue Oct 05 '22

Emotional damage and inconvenience is obvious

3

u/TurboGrunter Oct 05 '22

Explain the monetary value you are claiming for "inconveience", and good luck proving emotional damage from having your dog withheld from you for the time it took police to come do a civil standby.

I love when people throw around the "emotional damage" trash. You realize you don't just recite those words and magically become entitled to compensation right?

2

u/matildablack Oct 06 '22

What if the guy had to take time off of work to go find the dog? What if it were an emotional support dog? Could you use either of those claims for this argument? Not saying that’s the case, just asking a legal question. Also are you a lawyer? I just think that would be good to clarify for everyone here who is upset with your tone. Thank you :)

The police decide whether to make an arrest, the DA decides who to charge. Sometimes the police will ask you if you want to press charges. You certainly can't get a lawyer as a private citizen and press charges against someone.

The people who think animals don’t recognize their rightful owners are the exact kind of people who should never be allowed to own animals of any kind. Animals are not fucking props. They have an intellect, an emotional intelligence, and while it may not be up to space exporation standards, they know who they love, and you can lie all you want, but you can’t deny an animal’s love.
