"the family was set to retrieve the animal" Is the dog going back to the same house where the guy who dumped him lives? That doesn't make sense.

Usually its the dog doing the illegal dumping.

Why doesn't that make sense Andie? We don't know anything about them? What if an angry ex-boyfriend stole the dog and dumped it in Milford? Should the dog be taken away from the family because the ex-boyfriend is a jerk?

@Remember When: actually, it's usually the dog owners who don't pick up their dogs' feces. The dog's gotta go when the dog's gotta go; it's up to the person with the dog to clean up after them. And I know that most dog walkers don't do that; the evidence is all over my front lawn!

@UglyHat...I don't know anything about them. That's why I asked the question.
