Subject: You stole my dog and I want it back
My name is _______.I went on vacation in October and when I came back my Pittbull was gone. I saw her walking with some guy and he said he got her from you. I want my dog back or I will have to get a lawyer. Where do you get off stealing dogs and then reselling it. My dog is a blue nose with up ears and is grey and white. Her name is Princess not Sophie.
This is how I want to reply
Good Morning _________.
I am sorry for the loss of your dog but I did not steal her. Sophie was rescued running loose on my property. I put up fliers, called vets and her scanned for a microchip in order to find you but you never came forward. According to TX state law she was owned by The Animal House Rescue as of 11/21/12 and was adopted on 1/27/13 to her current owner (the man you saw I suppose). I am truly sorry but there is nothing I, or the US court system can do. (Part about contact to the owner has been removed)
Sorry I didn't add enough. She emailed the email address that I use specifically for my rescue. I am going to assume the owner was the one to give up the email when he told her where he got the dog from. Or he gave her my site and she found the email from there.
