No owner wants to lose their dog, but unfortunately, if it happens, make sure to report a shelter immediately so that they can help with the search.
Another way you can avoid losing your dogs is to have them microchipped. Microchips help find the location where your dogs are, therefore ensure that they’ll never be missing.
But, what if the dog that was missing turns out to be stolen? What if it was not someone else’s dog but yours? That was the case of twenty-one-year-old Redditor @cockwithout-c-o-c-k. Click here to see what happened to her and her dog.
@cockwithout-c-o-c-k owned a massive Akita dog named Mickey, who she trained to walk in distance from her since she was nine. As the neighbors saw her walking the dog without a leash, they thought it was a stray and rescue it from her home.
Things went downhill after OP (original poster) learned that and decided to take the Akita back from the neighbors. They said they already passed the dog to one of their friends. OP visited the friend and was finally able to take it home.
Later she found a post in the neighborhood Facebook group in which the neighbors and the friend were talking back and forth about how she could take the dog from a kid. Turns out they still didn’t believe she was Mickey’s owner. Can you imagine how angry she was?
Pissed off, OP came to her neighbors to shout at them. She couldn’t control herself in the anger and cursed them in front of their kids. OP is now being blamed for her rude and impropriate behaviors. Everyone, was she wrong?
OP’s post quickly became viral on the Internet, attracting 10.9K upvotes and thousands of comments. Redditors were divided to give their response.
A group of people took OP’s side and criticized the neighbor moms for being unreasonable.
Some even suggested pressing charges against the neighbors. One advised OP to give them a lesson by filing a police report regarding the stolen dog.
The other group thought that it was partly OP’s fault, too. She was wrong to leave her dog unleashed in the public, resulting in people mistaking the dog was not hers.
People advised her to put a leash on her dog the next time she took for a walk.
Some situations are hard to find solutions because everyone seems both right and wrong. OP needs your advice, please let her know in the comment.
