Riddle - A Victim of Irresponsibility and Deception

She was found as a stray in a suburban Essex County town without benefit of any i.d. tags, license or microchip. Within a few days, we were visited by a woman and her very young son who said that it was her dog. The woman advised that she saw the dog on Craig's List and bought it from two "crackheads" for $50 cash. Our attempts to find the ad proved fruitless.

We then asked for proper identification and she presented 3 different addresses and no documents to show ownership or expenses for the dog.

Although she identified her missing dog as a male, it is actually a female. When our staff asked when she lost the dog, it was a totally unrelated time period. Because of the untruthful answers and the deceitful manner in which the two "crackheads" came into possession of the dog, we are concerned about this dog's rightful ownership.

Tragically, in so many instances when there is a murky story as to ownership, past history, there may have been a wrongful act involved ---- pet theft, picking up a stray and selling it, and it is doubtful that we will ever know the truth. Obviously this dog was taken from another.

Pet owners are urged to have their pets microchipped and registered with a microchip company. Making a donation to AHS helps us in our open door policy to take in needy animals and give them the best opportunity to find a loving and lasting home rather than just collecting a fee and sending them out the door. And we will continue in our efforts to educate the public that there are mercentary people who have no conscience for animals but to make money from them and no concern for their future welfare.

For more information on Riddle call AHS at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us.
