Below is my original post. I know someone knows where this dog is, I had 487 shares on Facebook, I've sent posters to every animal clinic within 25 miles, I've bombarded McKamey animal center with multiple messages just to be ignored. I need help, please, if you know where this dog is or you know who does please please help me...
I have lost my two precious dogs, I adopted them to a lady name Melina because I was forced into a place without a yard at the time, I wanted to keep them together otherwise I would have kept Thor, Thor loves to spend the day in the house. However, Sam still had to be crated and she hated it, I felt terrible for her and its my belief a dog should not have to be crated for long periods of time. While I was trying to figure out what to do she began to break out of the heavy duty crate and destroy things and since I had no yard I had no choice. And as I said, I wanted to keep them together since she grew up with Thor. So they were adopted to Malina under the condition that she would let me know how they were doing and let me say hello to them every few months, however she won't answer me, blocked my number, and won't tell me what she did with them. I'm afraid she's pawned them to someone else and I'm really worried about them. Their names are Sam and Thor.
The circumstances that led to this are the following: my apartment tried to bump my rent up $200 more a month after my lease ended, I was forced to live in a single room where the landlord wouldnt allow my dogs to even step foot it, I had a friend keep them for over a month during that time, at which she could keep them no longer, then as you can read in the craigslist article, Sam began to break out of her crate and destroy everything in sight and I wanted them to stay together because she had been with thor since she was 12 weeks old, I spent upwards of $600 housing them at different places while trying to get it sorted it out and trying to provide a place for me to live and them to have room but after graduating with my Chemistry degree in May I was unable to find a job, I just recently found a full time job as a security officer after working 3 part time jobs for 6 months. I was trying to do what was best for the dogs with what I had available to me.
Back in September I was looking for a family for my dogs to find a new home because I was forced into an apartment with no yard and live alone so they would be home alone all day while i was at work, I found a lady and her two sons that contacted me and seemed very interested in them and we talked back and forth and met a few times, I gave them to her under the conditions that if she were to get rid of them to contact me first and I would take them back and find a better home for them and she said she was happy for me to come around and see them every once in a while. Recently I have been contacting her to see how they were, she ignored me for over a month and finally told me to stop contacting her. I went to speak with her at audubon acres to ask about them because she blocked my number, she threatened to call the police and told me they were fine and that she still had them. I didn't believe or trust her so I posted on craigslist asking if anyone had seen Sam or Thor or had any information on my dogs, I was contacted last night and told that they had bought sam from this lady back in september and sam was in a miserable condition, they said she reeked of urine smell and was malnourished and they could tell she wanted to get away from the lady, so they bought her just to get her away. They also informed me that the lady sold Thor to another family before they were able to contact her. This lady took my dogs from me and sold them for a profit and Did not take good care of them from what I have been told. Sam ended up at Mckamey animal center from what I hear ( I am going there today to inquire about her) and I have yet to find anything about Thor. This Lady, has threatened me with harassment charges and will not give me information.
UPDATE I have found Thor but am still searching for sam
UPDATE Ive been in contact with a lady at McKamey Animal Center, Paula Hurns, She told me Sam was adopted out. I asked her if she would ask Sam's new owners to contact me just so I can atleast keep up to date with sam, however she will not respond to me each time I've asked her if she has contacted them. I am hoping to put a little pressure on her to contact the family so I can see sam and try to keep in some kind of contact them. I understand that she cannot give out their information without the family's consent, i just want to make sure that she actually asks the family. I think anyone who knew what happened to sam would want to talk to the original owner and get as much info about sam as possible. If anyone would like to ask her to do the same, I think it may help for her to see that other people want Sam reconnected with her original owner after what happened, if you would like to help and email her I can provide her email
