The local paper said that a man called and had reported he found one and then never turned it in. The mother let the dog out and sometimes in wanders, so either someone stole it or it wandered and someone picked it up.

Also a reminder, coyotes are around so smaller dogs should NEVER be let out of sight because coyotes will grab them and possibly people will grab them too.

This person that made that call they need to call back and let them know if its' their dog or not.

After having several dogs all my life and losing one that was very special (not that they all weren't), I know what a pain in my heart it was. So for this soldier to have his best friend taken away from him, I'm sure he's feeling very sad.

It's weird because I just watched a documentary about "Service Dogs". They were in the army and deployed right along with the soldier whom was responsible for their care.

When the war was over, some of the dogs didn't make it back, just as some soldiers didn't. I know this is different, but really it's the same. Love is love and a partnership is a partnership. Doesn't matter if the dog is in the army with him or on the home front waiting for his return.

No one can replace the love you feel for your "best friend". And no one could ever know that more than I. I was a very lonely person who had lived alone due to financial difficulties after losing a job. My little kids had to go and live with relatives and I honestly must say, I was devastated. If not for my dog, Sheba (a Japanese Chow who was given to me as a puppy), I may not be writing this today. She changed my life and gave me a reason to smile and really a reason to live. It's as simple as that.

So who ever this person is that called about bringing in the dog, Drew, should just follow through. What is he holding him for, ransom? How cruel can you be? Maybe he, too, has a need for love. Perhaps he fell in love with Drew and changed his mind about giving him up. I can see that happening. But that is not fair to his proper owner.

My prayer (from my lips to God's ear) is that somehow this guy finds it in his heart to know the pain it is to have a "family member" missing and to realize the joy it would be to have him returned safe and sound.

Do the right thing. Because, when you do the right thing...you "ain't" never wrong.

Drew, I hope you and your loved one are reunited soon. It's a shame to have gone through so much in life only to be snatched from the loving arms of one who has given so much for so many.

That is the lowest of the low to steal some one's pet. I hope they find the dog before this hero returns home.

While I think it's really bad to that, it's NOT the lowest of the low to steal a pet. I would say stealing a child, beating a child, molesting a child or killing a child, or drinking a child's urine is the lowest of he low.
it aint right

Some one who steals a child doesn't even rate on the lowest of the low scale in my book. There is a place deep beneath the surface of lowness where they belong. A child abductor has a special place, no where near civilized society.

Way to thank someone who fights for your freedom. Do people in America today have no sense of right and wrong, do people not know the definition of the word "Honor"??

I really hope the dog is returned to the soldier...however, irresponsible dog ownership is to blame. You don't "let a dog out" without a method of containment and/or proper training where they stay where they're supposed to. Thieves, coyotes, other dogs, and cars are all dangers. Letting a dog roam around is just plain stupid.

It sounds like this dog was barking lots and not being taken care of properly which is too bad. I bet somebody Kramered it and released him somewhere in Indiana.

i would think if the dog had its legally required tags and wasn't just "let out" this never would have happened. i feel bad for the soldier, but his family dropped the ball
