Dog missing after being abandoned

Dog missing after owners dumped her outside of Los Angeles

Is she dead or alive? This is the question that a California dog-walker wants to know about a canine that she had been walking for nearly two years. The dog, named “Karma,” is believed to be roaming on her own (if she is still alive) somewhere outside of Los Angeles.

The story of Karma’s disappearance is bizarre – the dog walker claims that Karma’s owner admitted to dumping the dog on the night of October 10. Where exactly Karma was abandoned is unclear…her owners told the dog walker that the dog was let out of the car somewhere in Studio City, or North Hollywood, past the 101…down Laurel Canyon. Karma’s owner said that the dog was released in a wooded area, but claims that they are unsure of the actual location. Wherever Karma is, she was left to fend for herself in the elements, with no protection from wild animals.

Screenshots of text messages from Karma’s owner are equally strange, concerning and baffling – the owner, who made the decision to abandon Karma, did so after “meditating” about what to do. The individual claimed that Karma “exhibited extreme primal behavior,” and the decision to release her into the wilderness was made for her own good – because the thought of taking her to “the pound” made this individual “sick.” The owner stated that Karma was “being returned to nature” to “Let God take care of her.”

The dog walker, who found out about this strange and concerning situation after inquiring about Karma’s whereabouts, has reported the incident to animal control, but nothing has been done.

Now, she just wants to know if anyone has seen Karma – perhaps, against all odds, she found her way to a loving home and she is being taken care of. Or maybe she is already gone…a victim of a coyote attack, or prey to another wild animal.

Karma is a 60-pound female Australian shepherd mix who is microchipped. Anyone with information is asked to phone 323-345-9993.

    What an IDIOT!!! Dogs are not equipped to survive on their own “in the wild”! The moment we domesticated them, we took on the responsibility to PROTECT them! Prayers that you’re found, sweet Karma! ????

    OMG poor Karma, what has happened to her? Her POS owner needs to be held accountable for her disappearance, I pray she is found and I pray she is ok. The owner sounds like they have a few screws loose!

      Well I for one don’t have any doubt’s about the validity of this “Sad Tale” Just look at what goes on to stray dogs, cats, burros , horses , and any other breed on animal in ESPECIALLY in The L>A> AREA!!! It is just sickening and heartbreaking to those of us, and to the States that go out and make attempts to help the homeless animal population!!! I commend the dog walker for speaking up!!! She may open a few of the eyes of the sunglass clueless people there!!!
