One of our friends in the area we used to live at just called us. Yesterday he took the dog with him to some place and he needed gas. When he went to go get gas and pay for it the dog jump out and was sitting at the truck. While he was heading to his truck he seen a lady and a man go pick up his dog( a pitbull) and they took it.<br>
Today this morning he called us to say what happened and my husband an him went on computers and track down the name the gas station gave this friend. He took most of the morning searching .<br>
Then a few hours ago he went to the house of this couple and lady answered the door and said she took the dog to get breed and its at the breeders in a town 45 mins away from him.<br>
Then he went to go to the breeder and the dog jumped up and indicated its his and this dog is fixed Thank God. However the breeder had him pay them 100 bucks to get his dog back. What in the world does they have a right to ask an answer of a fixed dog and a stolen dog to pay them 100 bucks for? The people that stole it should pay them not our friend.<br>
If I have a dog If I bring it with I am getting tags for it and makin sure they are secure before heading some place what losers that stole this dog.

He tried the police nothing. I would still press charges against them myself anyhow the dog is found and I am glad she is fixed. If she wasn't fixed she would've been violated.

It's always a good idea (and in most places required by law) to have ID tags on your dogs and/or microchips. It's also a good idea to never leave a dog alone in a car. It's dangerous for a number of reasons.<br><br>
If someone steals/removes/rescues your dog you can call the police but in my experience the police do not know animal law and they might do things that could make the entire situation worse.

What the....wow. I wouldn't have given them anything. I would have called the cops. I'd go crazy if someone stole my dog like that. If they refused to give her back I'd be camping out in front of their house and following them around everywhere they went, all the while demanding that they give me my dog back.<br><br>
This is one of the craziest things I've heard in a while. Did the breeder give any kind of reason as to why your friend owed him $100 to get his stolen dog back? The whole thing doesn't really sound organized enough to be a scam, so I wonder what the heck was going on.

That is one of the weirdest things i've ever heard of i literally out loud said "what the f***" when i read that, and then was thinking i bet it's not legal to do what i would want to, which is pull gun out and stick it in their face, dogs are seen as property, i bet if someone kidnaps your kid you could pull gun on them and cops would look the other way. Anyway glad he got the dog back.

The people who picked up the dog probably thought he was a stray, if he was outside of the pickup truck. Maybe he walked up to them? Who knows. Either way, your friend was pretty irresponsible to have the dog loose in the back of his truck (that's not safe). He's lucky something worse didn't happen.<br><br>
I don't really follow how the dog got back to the breeder, but I can understand charging a fee if they have irresponsible people's dogs getting dropped off with them all the time.

I think she was in cab of the truck with some windows up. The person that took her brought her to the breeders and wanted to breed her not knowing she is fixed, she should've paid not our friend.

Pit bulls should never be left attended. They are easy to steal because, contrary to popular belief, most of them are very human friendly. I can think of a few reasons, none of them good, that this thief wanted pit bull puppies. I'm glad your friend got his dog back. He's very lucky. He should get her microchipped if she isn't already.
