    1. Chill out! Its just a slip leash. They are used all the time by vets, animal rescues, animal control and law enforcement when the dog does not have a collar and needs to be under control.

  2. This day and age you have to watch every MINUTE, you can’t take chances anymore, too many yahoos out there. Glad you got your puppy back.

  3. God blessed you and the woman who recognized your loved one.
    He is home where he will loved and cared for. 🙂 Thank you all who
    helped him get home.

  4. Would you leave your infant alone in the car ?
    This is a gorgeous puppy. Thank gawd LUCK was on the pup and owners side.
    Thugs scums dirt bags are attracted to cute PB’s To change , force , torture and abuse them into becoming fighting dogs.

    Dog Fights generate thousands of illegal gambling dollars thats their livelihood as well as stealing /dealing / killing.
    If people sincerely love and care about their pets then PROTECT them. Keep them out of harms way.
    A puppy is defenseless.

  5. Like it’s the owners fault that a creep just happened to break in the vehicle and steal the innocent dog while the dog’s family had stopped by a friend’s house, the puppy was left in the car for less than three minutes. While inside, someone had broken into the vehicle, taking the puppy and making a hasty escape. Give me a break.
