|I would absolutely have acted on this like yesterday. That puppy needs the social interaction it can only get from it's mother and litter-mates. His brain is going to be fried. Why are you so worried about hurting someone's feelings??? Who cares damn it?? I hate this politically correct world. GET THE DOG BACK.|

|Well, how goes the puppy hunt? Have you confronted them yet? Don't keep us hanging.|

Jim, Jim, Jim,
You forgot professional athletes!! Like you, I am curious as to why anyone thinks these folks are somehow sacrosanct? I know a lot of folks who think/thought they were above the law. Oddly enough, most of them are convicted felons!! It's called "delusions"--NOBODY is above the law, not even the US President. (I thought we had established that some time ago, with a "pardon" of some kind....)
GO to the POLICE! From what you have written, I don't see where the pup is tattooed (@3wks), microchipped, or had DNA tests done. Plus, pups' appearances often change a lot over the course of a few months. If you see them with a younger pup in a couple of months, how are you going to be able to prove that it is your missing puppy? The standard of proof may be less in a civil court, than a criminal one, but you still must present proof. That may become more difficult to do, as time goes on. At the very least, make the report.

|If your worried about making accusations without proof, stake out their place yourself, armed with a camera. Hopefully the address you have isn't a fake and you can even find them. If your doubting yourself, sit and wait until you see them outside to confirm they live there, pull up and pretend you were in the meighborhood and just "dropped by" to check on the pup and make sure they are satisfied. If they act wierd, don't invite you in, you can feel better about going further. If your lucky, you will catch them red handed with the younger pup, call the cops with your cell phone or walk right up and take your pup back. If you do see the pup, I highly suggest you walk right up and take it if at all possible. If you wait for the police and they have no warrant, the douchbags don't have to let them in and you may never see the pup again.|
If no one is home, I'd walk right up to the door, listen for a bit and then knock on the door, listen some more. Maybe barking dogs will get the little one whining and you can hear. I'd be looking in any windows not drapped closed and have my ears wide open. Look for signs of tiny puppy poop, or anything that could help your case.
First things first, you need to make sure you even know their real address. I'd call them really stupid to hand you their real address, if they stole form you, but stranger things have happened. Not much calling the cops will do, unless they have the pup outside when the police roll up. They do not have to let them in to do a search, so unless they cave to a little push from the cops (doubtfull since they were bold enough to steal right under your nose) all you will be doing is pissing them off and forcing them to hide the pup better or ditch him quick. There go your chances of getting him back quickly.

|I have a feeling the pup is not in their possession. If he is, indeed, an LEO, he wouldn't be that dumb. He'd have to know that THEY know he was the only one with the opportunity to take the pup. He probably handed it straight off to the guy that he referred to as wanting one. You should call and let him know that a pup is missing so if his friend is still interested, he should put a deposit down and come and pick because there are many more buyers waiting in line. Let it go and make him think you have no idea he may have been the ONE. Suck him in, like he sucked you in. Keep asking about the friend and try to get more info. Sneak attack. No communication is only telling him you know and he'll be much more cautious. When you do call, tell him you've been really busy trying to locate the missing pup because you had someone suspicious at the house just after he left. Then, since he is in LE, ask for his assistance!|

|Hi Mystere, my pups sire and dam are Dna'd with the AKC, also he had an identical twin in the litter, a female that looks just like him, and she's going to be living 10 minutes from my house, so I can update his onfo with her picture.|
4pack, you have good ideas also, I have an animal control officer that got a pup from me, and she sent e-mails to at least 30 other AC officers. I also have people doing drive bys that live near the people I suspect. I think he did hand the pup off to his friend.
GSDtravels, the ideas you have, were what I was thinking about saying, after all, we have had bad flooding in our area, and we have been pumping water out of our yard & basement, so we have been very busy, and they got the same flooding, maybe if I did mention their friend in a round about way, I could get a name, I did get the town he lives in, so I do have alittle info to go on.
I am also going in person to tell various dog trainers about pups misfortune.
I will never forget about him, and I will always be looking for him, always!
Thank you so much everyone for your ideas, keep praying that he's safe and alive, and that I'll bump into him sometime in the future.
I am heartbroken...........

I don't understand why you haven't gone to the police???
by Slamdunc on 03 April 2010 - 04:13
why haven't you gone to the police? What are you waiting for? Could you please explain this to us? AC is not the right people to go to, you need to go to the police. If you really want the dog back go right away, that is your best bet if you really think you have a suspect. You never did say that this person was in LE, just alluded to that? What is the real story?

|I think the person that mirasmom suspects could be alot of trouble if she goes to the police. I would hate to have to look over my shoulder the rest of my life. I have complete confidence that she will do her best to get the pup back. The old saying is were there is a will there is a way, JUST SHOOT THE B.......... |

|Yes, the person I suspect is in LE, so why would he lose his pension over a puppy.|
I firmly believe that what goes around comes around, I have led a fairly honest life raising 8 children, I believe I'm no better than the next person, I feel that the people that I suspect may have taken my puppy just made a very bad judgement at that moment, and if they returned the puppy back to me, I would be ever so grateful, NO questions asked, if they feel uncomfortable, than hand it to a AC officer or a police officer, or a person wanting a $ 500.00 reward, please just return him so he can play with his brothers & sisters, and learn some dog manners from mom & dad.
I am relying on the power of prayer.
He only lives 30 minutes from me, and his friend lives right next to his town, so I will be hearing about this pup in the future,
Here is a picture of his twin sister.....I took today, they are 5 weeks old tomorrow April 5th 2010, and yes, I would love to have an Easter miracle...

Your kindness and prayers in waiting for the return of your pup is actually endangering your 3 week old pup who really in need to be with the litter pack and mom. Please go to the police and report the incident, if they were innocent they will understand your concerns surely. Please do not delay any longer.
