A family fears that their beloved dog is dead after he was left at a boarding facility in Houston, Texas. According to Wednesday’s KHOU News, Luxor, a German shepherd, was left at the City Canine training and boarding facility in early July while his family took a vacation to Colorado.
Upon the family’s return to the facility following their vacation, they were told that Luxor was gone – the business claims that the dog broke through a fence and disappeared. Luxor’s owners now fear that something much worse than running away happened…though exactly what took place remains a mystery.
Robert Wojehowski told KHOU News that he was contacted by a former employee of City Canine approximately two weeks after the dog “ran away.” The former employee allegedly told Wojehowski, “The person who called us said he had seen our dog dead in a crate a few days before and let us know that the owner went out after and tore up the fence to fabricate a story that our dog had gotten out.”
The Wojehowski family is not alone – another family in the area claims that their dog died at the same facility, during the same time period. The owner of the other dog, whose body underwent a necropsy to determine the cause of death, has filed a police report. The results of the exam were inconclusive – unfortunately, the vague results left the local hands of the local authorities tied.
