Mugsy appeals for decency

I was very disturbed by this news story. A Dallas pug named Scooter has been dognapped and given to a little girl as a gift by her mother, who sent Scooter's caretakers a note and $20. The woman, possibly from Tulsa, Okla., wrote that she was nearly penniless and an alcoholic but that the dog was being well taken care of. Clearly, this is beside the point. Scooter belongs with his family in Dallas. So on the off chance that this woman or someone who might know her is reading, I want to appeal for decency. The rightful caretakers have even offered to buy the woman's daughter a new pug if they can just have their own dog back. Here is a letter from one of the pug's caretakers.

Please, send Scooter home.

Ria volunteers to personally re-dognap the dog and return it to its proper home.

Now we know what kind of thinking lost her custody in the the first place. Can ARF be of any help?

How very sad for Scooter's parents. Hopefully, Scooter's new "family" will hear of this and they'll do the right thing.

I heard about that, too. Isn't that ridiculous?!

I just want to say that the lady in Tulsa who gave the dog as a gift was totally wrong to give a "stolen/found" gift in the first place. She needs to give the dog back to its owners and let her daughter know that she was WRONG!!
