    What kind of friend gives his friend's dog away? Hopefully since he is chipped they will be able to find him. How sad to come home to that.

    So sad that a so called friend volunteered to keep his dog while soldier sacrifices his life for his freedoms just to give his dog away!

    There has to be more to this story. I feel really bad for the guy, don't get me wrong, I do and I would be pissed.

    According to the story he got the dog at 8 weeks. The dog is now two and the solider has been overseas for at least a year. Again I am not making lite of it, but I think I would cut my losses over a dog that I was only with maybe a year. I would try to follow up on who got the dog, but getting in fights on the interweb with azzhats only makes the whole ordeal worse. The emotional trauma is more than it is worth.

    The thing I'm wondering is why the so-called "friend" hasn't been named? That would be the most obvious way to proceed.

    Why would someone give away a dog that not theirs?

    That is what I thought and was wondering as well. Regardless this person isn't what I would consider a "friend" for doing something like this.
