I fear that if you keep the husky ,these kind of people will go straight out and get themselves a new dog,
that also then will roam.
Very scary, and real possibility. Great point.

And maybe not, they might be glad they are rid of the "problem" and never get another dog......I would take the gamble.

One thing is a sure bet right now, this dog is in real danger of meeting a horrible end.

An equally good point.

Whether or not the law is thrown at them as previously suggested, I would not return this dog to them. He is the one that needs a caring home with a responsible guardian right now. My personal opinion.

I found out how he got out of my fence...I have one of those big green electrical boxes in my back yard. He got on that and then jumped the fence into my neighbor's yard. The neighbor let him out and he took off.

If it was me, and that guy was really a jerk, I'd turn the dog into the shelter. If the dog keeps getting out he could get hit by a car. Maybe you could find a rescue that could take him, I'm not sure how that works if you have to turn them into a county shelter first or not?

I wonder if the OP is a dog-napper and is trying to get some 'expert" advice on how to fool everyone into thinking they found it in case they got caught. Hummm twice the same dog and no other??? The owner was a jerk casue they caught you with their lost/stolen dog?

Didn;t we have someone who posted about their dog going missing and they found the dog at the groomers owned by someon else. Didn't the folks here tell that person to do what it takes to get their dog back from that person even if it means breaking the law or commiting a crime? Wasn't one suggestion to get violent with the person? So now this owner is a jerk cause they are pissed off at the person who stole their dog from their yard?

I say you retrun the dog to the owner cause you know who it is. If you have issues with the owner's care of the animal, take it up with the authorites. But if you decide to just keep it, all you are is a dog napper and a thief!

As brutal as PF can be - this is the best advice on here from a legal perspective. Emotionally - I think we all would want to keep it and give it the home it deserves. Legally however, it is the property of another and to keep it without making an attempt to return it to its owner could be considered as theft. Not a popular belief but unfortunately, the one that would prevail in most court systems

Well, the dog is now a stray. Anyone could save a stray dog and call a rescue or shelter for its type.
