Default This is just unbelievable!

Oh. My. God! No one is going to believe me!

Well, for those that don't remember Bear, Davids lab/boston mix girl, was staying at his brothers house in Eastern, Wa because she grew too big (they thought she was a yorkie/boston mix) until he could bring her back up here. Well she was let off her collar when they put her in the back yard, they found her collar in the yard WITHOUT her tags! We saw her on petfinder.com in a shelter and she had been hit by a car. We drove overnight non-stop down there and back and got her to a vet that morning. Well, david took her to the vet I had to go to work with no sleep, but it was worth it.

No one really thought about it then, but about an 40 mins ago david got a message saying they found his dog Bear a pit bull running around a casino parking lot in the tri cities (where his brother lives).

David called them back and apparently a pittie is running around with Bears tags! So whoever let bear out stole her tags to put on their dog She got hit by a car and went through a lot because of them!! >_<

But David got three calls in the last 40 mins from people saying Bear was there. They all said the pittie is very friendly and David asked two of them to try to get the tags off of it. The third caller said he was going to keep the dog, but didn't believe David when he said it wasn't really Bear, even though he explained the situation. He seemed to think that dog was Bear and we dumped it, which is funny since I'm staring at Bear right now and that dog is 5 hours away from here

Either way, these people aren't getting their dog back, though we would like to know who it was there's no way to find out without putting the otherwise friendly dog to sleep (HS will put it to sleep).

I just can't believe someone would do that! The area they are in has laws regarding "dangerous dogs." you have to pay for insurance on them so I think the owners stole the tags because bear is listed as a lab mix, and she looks kinda pit'ish mix maybe so they thought they could have her tags and not pay the insurance!


This is the original thread, it's been almost 5 months and her hip is still causing her problems. It is very likely to never fully heal and she will never be able to run and jump like she normally would. When she tries she hurts herself.

And her after she was hit (a few weeks after I believe). Her belly was red/swollen from being drug under the car and sliding on pavement, her pelvis was badly misalligned and fractured, and she had large gashes on her legs.

Oh, poor Bear! This story is like a bad soap opera; some lowlife actually stole her tags to put on another dog? The mind boggles.

Kudos to you and David for searching so hard to find her and for going so far to save her. As for "Bear" the pit bull---

Thats quite a story. TBH I would think the same thing if I was the person with the dog (that it was dumped and the owner was lying)


we actually rehomed a dog, only to get a call a week or so later from a person saying they found our dog...ummm. huh? Turns out they kept OUR tags on her. We gave them their contact and thought it was a fluke, like they didn't have as secure a yard as they thought. Then the dog shows up in the shelter (months later) STILL with our tags on...WTF??? Talk about a rehome fail.


Bear look so pathetic.

Honestly, I wouldn't believe us either. It's kinda a hard story to believe!!!

Bear's entire personality was changed after that incident. She is still very friendly to everything, but she just has a sad look to her.

OMG the last caller said he was going to keep the pittie, but I got another call from a lady saying the dog just showed up at her house and they have it in their home with them. She said she'd take the tags off so hopefully she does.

Yeah, three people found it and all called. The third guy said he was keeping it and would take the collar off and then I get a call from a lady who said it walked up to their door and was in their house right now. She said she would take off the tags so I'm hoping she does.

She was the fourth person to call.

LOL! This last lady seemed to believe me, though it's hard to tell from just the phone. She seemed in shock at the story though, so who knows. I just hope this was the last call!

That's crazy! And why wouldn't they believe you? If someone was dumping a dog to get rid of it, wouldn't they want to remove any means of tracing it back to them?
