Editor, the Advocate:
This letter is in regards to the front page article about the "lost dog" that was eventually adopted out and his life saved. I was appalled that the dog in question was not returned to its rightful owner.
Over the years, dogs have shown up at my home, and fortunately, the owners were found. My husband has a dog that is very special to us, and we would never want to lose her.
I recognized the dogs from the picture in the Advocate and have witnessed the true owner at the store she works at with her dogs there on occasion. She loves them profoundly and has taken very good care of them. You can see the love.
Because of the extenuating circumstances of how this came down, this dog should be returned to the real owner. I'm sure she now would "chip" and neuter the dog. It comes down to not what is legal but what is right. To the adoptive current owner: I don't know how you were brought up. So here it is - return the dog.
