I wish they would shame the hell out of his ex.

Somebody did that to me my foot would have a heartfelt chat with their ass.

The family has been offered $14,000 to return the dog

LOL. That was my joke.

Totally agree.  If they don't do that they've missed out on a great opportunity to shape their children into worthwhile adults.  That and they're just plain disgusting people who should be turned into pariahs by the community.

sums it up right here: "Now that they know about it, they can do the right thing," says supporter Nancy Wallace. "They can teach their children, 'Yeah this is very difficult, but we do the right thing.'"

That's probably the best move.  I don't really fault the family for wanting to keep the dog, after all they obtained it under legitimate seeming means, but if they've only had it for a few months it's probably smarter to do the nice thing and give it back to the guy.
 
2014-06-17 09:24:47 PM  
Two things need to happen.

A - the dog dog needs to be returned to the soldier when he comes home.

B - the "girlfriend" needs to be taken to the county fair, and spend the way working as the schmuck in a ducking booth...filled with rancid pig shiat instead of water.

Why is the ex-wife going after the dog, not Robby?

A Colorado family took in a soldier's missing dog and is refusing to give the Shiba Inu back because they say their kids are too attached.

The dog's owner, Robert "Robby" Gabbert, was deployed to Afghanistan in March, and he left his 3-year-old Shiba Inu, named Baxter, with the wrong person. His girlfriend in Fort Carson was supposed to be petsitting Baxter, but she decided it was too much for her to handle. Instead of returning him to Robby's family, she sold him on Craigslis

/So let me get this straight. This fine young man was serving in our military, in a war zone where he could have been killed, and his coont of a girlfriend can't even manage to pony up the strength to watch a farking dog? Really? And instead of giving the dog to the parents of the soldier, she sold it on craigslist? Wow. He should really get a few kicks in the coont on that biatch...seriously.

And to the family who has the dog, I guess, it's apparently more important to protect your precious crotch fruit from any mental pain, because that would, you know, prepare them for life. Rather, you have taught them a lesson of heartless selfishness. Way to go, you are both assholes. Turn in your parental cards immediately
 
2014-06-17 09:26:47 PM  
Damn. That's cold. She sold his dog. This is why you leave your stuff with family; not girlfriends or boyfriends, or whatever.


/ If I was less than honest; I might doggynap him for $14,000.

Feckless douche abandons his dog with irresponsible girlfriend, she sells it, dog is now with a responsible family, where it enjoys lots of attention and exercise instead of being cooped up in some Fort Carson apartment/meth lab.

She sounds like a real keeper!
 
2014-06-17 09:30:16 PM  
This all sounds like a metaphor for how troops lose rights after serving, is the dog's name Freedom?
 
2014-06-17 09:30:56 PM  
Ok so it's June. He left in March. I assume she at least gave it a few weeks before selling the dog which means the other family has had it for maybe two months, maximum? They won't take FOURTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS for a dog they've had for two months?

moothemagiccow: Not planning on staying in the country? Don't buy something that needs daily care.


You're trolling, right?

I mean, it's not like every soldier gets a dog right before deployment.  Soldiers at times leave behind dogs that were with them when they were kids. 

The dog is 3; how long has this guy been in the military?

Don't be such a douche, even if this is the faceless internet.
 
2014-06-17 09:36:35 PM  
It wasn't her dog to sell, she was just a guardian, so wouldn't the sale be considered illegal?

fark him, he chose to leave the dog with a girl who did not want it. The family acquired it legally end of story.

/Why should the family be pressured to give up what is now a loved family pet because this douche is in the military? Would it be different if he were in prison?  We need to stop sucking the dick of the military industrial complex and all of its adherents.

Also this.  I see no compelling reason why the dog shouldn't be forcibly (if need be) returned to the rightful owner, and the coont girlfriend and the purchasers can hash the rest out between them.

How about you don't get a pet if you can't care for it?  If you choose a job that can just randomly send you away to die, the fewer people / beings relying on you the better.

I don't see what the big deal is.

He can get a new one for almost nothing. In fact, the pound kills the ones they can't give away.

And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it

The girlfriend was not the legal owner of the dog.
She did not have the right to sell it.
 
2014-06-17 10:02:47 PM  
Suzie Rottencrotch is a stone cold biatch.

Never trust a girlfriend while you are away on deployment... hell, even the wives need to be checked in on once and a while (or have your mother move in with your wife for a while)

The article says the family that has the dog is also a military family. You have to wonder if the dad in that family is deployed as well. It would certainly explain their reluctance to return the dog.
 
2014-06-17 10:08:47 PM  
I'm pretty sure from the article that the family hasn't responded to the 14,000 offer yet, so there's still a chance for the right thing to happen here; guy gets his dog back, family gets a college fund, and only people out anything are the kids who'll get over it in less than a week and a few people who apparently make charity decisions based on the last Gawker network article they read.
