Help Find Scooter.

Scooter is a one year old Pug, living in Dallas with his humans Rob and Kim Velevis.

On Christmas Eve, he went out the doggie door, and slipped under the fence and disappeared.

The family scoured the neighborhood, put up fliers, checked with local shelters.  They couldn't find Scooter.

A week and a half later, they received an anonymous letter postmarked Tulsa Ok.  If was from a woman who found Scooter crossing the street to the dog park.  Excerpts from the letter follow:

I am writing to tell you that your little dog has a good and safe home.

I saw your little dog crossing the a street in to a park that is by a school. He came up right up to me, and I took him and gave him to my daughter on Christmas."

The woman, who confesses in the letter that she is a recovering alcoholic, wrote "I lost custody because of problems I had with alcohol, and I have lost everything else.  I have been sober for 6 months, and I am trying to turn myself around, but I have lost everything. My little girl wanted a pug dog like your little dog (very much!)"

She enclosed $20 in the envelope.

here is the story on cbs news

I posted it on i-dog and our dogs online.  They already knew about it, though, on ODO.

I told DH about this and he is furious at that woman for taking a family member away from the family who owns the dog rightfully.  I hope and pray the dog gets home super soon.

Ok, we all know how much I really, really, REALLY want a pug but that is very messed up and very wrong!!!  I feel so bad for the pug, his family and that little girl if/when the dog is found and given back to the rightful owner.  Stupid people!  Stupid!!  enraged

I looked online and couldn't find any updates. That's very sad and I hope that the woman returns the dog and lets them buy her daughter a replacement.

God bless, all,
