Steal

Let me tell you a story.

Recently Togo's parents had a new litter of pups, and by 3 months all but one (let's name him Puppy X) has left for new homes.

There is no one at their home during work hours, so although Togo's parents lounge in the porch the whole day, as a rule Mr Owner always keeps puppies in the house.

Since Puppy X is all alone, and not too small anymore, Mr Owner decided to leave Puppy X in the company of his parents on the porch.

Mr Owner went to work. Mr Owner came back from work. Puppy X is gone.

Mr Owner is ANGRY.

Mr Owner scoured all Husky puppy ads. Mr Owner was ON A HUNT.

One month later.

Mr Owner answered an advert for a similar pup. Mr Owner went to view said pup, in a vet-cum-seller in Sg Buloh. Mr Owner look at pup, and Mr Owner knows he has found Puppy X.

Mr Owner showed pictures of Puppy X parents. Mr Owner say, 'This is my pup. We can prove with blood test. I'm going to report you.'

Mr & Mrs Vet-cum-seller is scared. They say 'Take your pup.' They say they get the pup from a Mr Trader.

Mr Trader! The name is familiar to Mr Owner. The Mr Trader he knows was interested in Husky puppies. Mr Owner calls up the Mr Trader he knew, and it is the correct Mr Trader that sold the pup to Mr & Mrs Vet-cum-seller.

Mr Trader say he bought the pup from a Mr Supplier. Mr Trader says he frequently gets his stock of smaller breed pups from Mr Supplier. But, Mr Trader says, you cannot contact Mr Supplier. Mr Supplier calls Mr Trader when there is new 'stock' and brings them over for viewing and sale. Mr Trader say pup was one of three Husky pups Mr Supplier showed him that time.

Mr Trader gave Mr Owner number of Mr Supplier. As expected, the number is constantly out of service.

Mr Owner is still ANGRY.

This is all the story I have for now.

Please, if buying a pet, buy responsibly. Buying direct from breeders is best, and insist on seeing both parents. Do not feed this vile dog-napping business.

Trivia:
Puppy X
sold to Mr Trader by Mr Supplier : RM 850
sold to Mr & Mrs Vet-cum-seller : RM 950
the selling price to Mr Owner : Rm 1500

So Mr Supplier stole puppy x? I wonder how he steals... Does he know you or lives near you or has he been aiming your dogs? curious....

The selling price is daylight robbery! Tsk tsk all these dognappers!

Even if Mr Supplier get caught by Mr Owner I guess he can only warn him. He will surely do it again. Therefore what we need to do is like you said buy direct from breeder.

That is terrible! I hope Mr. Owner can get to the bottom of it and get some bad people in trouble!
