This video caught my attention this week. A man stole a couple’s greater Swiss mountain dog from an enclosed, locked dog run Dec. 6 in Forth Worth, Texas, according to a local Fox news station. He then posted about it on reddit saying he’d rescued the 10-month-old dog from the cold.
The couple got the dog back Thursday night through a meeting with reddit users at a Fort Worth shopping center, according to Fox. Police are still investigating.
Of course, posters on reddit were full of opinions about how you should never leave a dog outside. Others defended the couple, saying the Swissy is a breed that typically thrives in colder weather.
I can think of very few circumstances where it’s OK to steal someone’s dog. This is not one of them.
What do you think?
