|Molly I agree this story has so many air holes in it. I do not know Cory personaly but I know Trixx and have for a long time. She did keep in contact with him but then contact got less frequent not on her part but on his part. In fact this trial he was suppose to be taking the dog too a few weeks ago, he told her straight out not to come to it because he was worried she would distract him. Then when she found out he did not take the dog he said OH his retrieve was not where it should be, even though he proffessed to her that HE WAS READY? He came up with this story about him running off after the cops had been to his premisses and your right why wait 6 days to inform the client their dog went missing? I pray that Teddy is still with us and that someone has him in their home because he is a nice dog, loves everyone or at least he did. I also want to know about this rumor about his dogs being taken away. This kind of things just gets me so angery. I am encuraging Trixx to get on this and get down there, because unless she see's things herself the wonder will always be there. I now maybe some of you think this was partially her fault and that is so far from the truth. If I send my dog to Germany to be trained I do not physically go and check on the dog. You stay in contact by phone or email and its not unheard of. As long as the owner was keeping up with the goings on of his training she was doing her part. Lets all keep crossposting and alerting everyone we can about Teddy and hopefully he will be returned. If any of you have more info about the dogs being taken away please PM ME!!!|

|Oh boy, his story does sound fishy. |
I sincerely hope you find your dog Trixx. :(

|I called the franklin county shelter, they said they only take in strays or dogs voluntarily given up by their owners, they don't deal with humane quality issues. So then I called Capital Area humane society, which deals with animal abuse for our county...they said that they have not made any raids or taken any dogs from any trainers in the last few months. I also called Fairfield county shelter, they also have not made any raids or received any dogs from any trainers, nor have they had any dogs come through there doors in the last month or so that matched Teddy's description. |
So...I can't find any info to verify anything about dewberry having dogs taken from him by any shelter or humane officials.

|One of my big concerns is that I have worked at an animal shelter and even though you give a good discription, and they say nope not there. DON'T trust that. Way to often dogs come in under a discription that isn't even close. Pictures is what they need. and nothing beats actually looking for yourself.|

|Mcityre is making a good point.|

|I gave a generic description, just traditional black and tan intact male german shepherd, Fairfield said that they hadn't had any in the last few weeks. Capital Area couldn't tell me what they had and Franklin county firmly requires that people come in to look for a dog, they don't give or accept any descriptions over the phone.|

|Try to call Kathy and Tim Wilmoth (maybe that is who Hexe is talking about) from Wilmothhaus kennels in Ohio. They know pretty much everyone and they are former Law Enforcement there. If you just Google Wilmothhaus you will get their telephone and email. They might be able to help. Worth a try.|

|This guy has gotten in trouble for failing to have dogs confined before in Franklin County. Also, post on here it is the lost and found for that area:|
http://www.franklincountyauditor.com/dogs/lost_dogs/bulletin_board also go here for Hamilton County lost dogs http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/OH98.html or and you posted on Columbus Craigs List so you know this is there:

|I did not post everything I found, but if you google the telpehone number and lost dogs, there have been other dogs lost over the years as well!|

|hunger, Kathy & Tim are precisely who I was referring to--and for the very reasons you describe. Kathy immediately got word out to her contacts in that area, and cautioned that trixx was going to have to stay directly on top of this, because all of this took place in a location where three different jurisdictions come together...so you can't really know which one would have become involved, and it's too easy for Teddy to fall through the cracks.|
I really hope trixx is in transit at this moment, because I don't see this ending well unless she is on the scene and can be hands-on/boots on the ground right there.

|I hope she is also in touch with an attorney, and the police - because I think she's going to need to deal with this "trainer" in a legal way. Lost dog my foot. It was either sold, lost a long time ago, or killed due to negligence. Bet on it.|

|I'm not a gambling sort of person, Molly, but that's a wager I fear is likely an easy win...I'd gladly see that bet lost, though, as would any ethical, compassionate person if it meant that this dog got to return safely home to his owner and family again. |
I know trixx has been in touch with the police in that area, and Kathy Wilmoth also reached out to them as well, so that should help in getting the patrol shifts to keep an eye out for him, but I also don't think he's going to be found trotting across some field as a stray dog...I'm hoping he's in someone's house, sleeping on their couch, if he's not ever going to be able to be found by trixx again.

|well, with everything we have done to alert everyone , there is no news on teddy, i still have alot of people looking, i wont stop till teddy is found,|
someone knows where he is or what happened to him.
but i think you guys have a good idea, that he may not of really ran off.
i have a few idea yet, i am hearing some bad things that Cory has done.
i will say that cory did put up a few ads online and even one he had to pay- so we will see. but he just did it yesterday.
yes my experience with Cory i cant say was good and the problem with me is i think everyone is honest.
i love my teddy and will do anything to get him home.
i will tell you if any new news is known.
thanks for caring, i hope this never happens to anyone , as it is so wrong to be treated this way.
please share everywhere-

I'm real sorry your dog disappeared. Hexe is right, you need to be in Ohio now.
Also you should offer the biggest cash reward for getting him back that you can afford. People get real loose lips when they can make a thousand bucks or more by blabbing. Again, Hexe is right, someone knows something.

|Cory should also have flyers with big, bold print and a clear color picture, posted on every stopsign at every intersection in the area - hundreds of them. Also at every vet office, every shelter, every pet store and every training facility. Ads in the lost/found section and pet sections of every local newspaper and online news feeds. Radio spots. He should have done this in the first couple days since Teddy went missing, and yes he should have paid for all of it. The fact that he didn't do any or all of these things is a big hint that last Wednesday is not the day Teddy went missing, or running away was not the way he was lost.|
by eichenluft on 07 December 2012 - 06:53
|Hexe, I would also be thrilled if I am wrong and Teddy was indeed lost, found by someone and kept (because the trainer didn't start posting/looking seriously until a week later????)|
