Sadly, this is not the first time I've heard of a story like this. There is much to the show world that is more than simply being about the dogs. Actually, very little of it is really about the dogs. We wouldn't participate at all, but so many think it's necessary. We don't participate in the professional handler part of it at all. It's a money and ego game for the most part.

Even if you found the dog, the current owner is not going to want get involved in whatever strange thing is going on and hand it over. If you have a legal right to the dog, you could get it back very quickly with the help of authorities. Or at least get your money back. Small claims court could also be a way to get the cash; small claims cases are frequently mediated and there are no criminal consequences. If you don't want to pursue those options... I don't think this will go well. I'm sorry you're in this situation.

I agree with everyone, this is strange. If i were you I would be in a panic mode running to the police and having my dog's face plastered all over the hood and the social media.
I know that some less than reputable kennels will sell dogs away while you are gone but that is pretty rare. you gotta do something.

This makes me feel like watching Best in Show (the movie) again. I never get tired of that one.

Wherever that sweet boy is, I just hope he is cared for and loved. I would be a basket case if either of my two furry kids were missing. I hope this gets resolved very soon.

What ever it is that has gone on you know what the person wanted. Communication and flowing your contract would have most likely been and still could be your solution.

Yeah, Beth, so would most of us, but it sounds like in this case it was primarily a business venture. Taking into account the possibility for misunderstanding with only the few words posted by the OP, I have to admit that I was rather shocked and put off by the coldness and emphasis on the money she'd spent. If my dog was missing I sure as hell wouldn't be focused on how much money I'd spent on him, and in fact would probably go in hock for the rest of my life if that's what it took to get him back. Just goes to show, it takes all kinds, I guess.

I know nothing about this missing dog or any transaction related to the dog, but I recognize the man pictured with the dog. He is a breeder in West Virginia. I spoke with him once or twice and then decided to look elsewhere because I got a "creepy" vibe from him. I don't know much about his current breeding practices or handling, but he imported Salemi Charly from Hungary and was very respected at one time.

Much of the Starborn line, including my Maccabee, is descended from Charly.
