A woman in Stafford, Texas, is distraught after learning that her lost dog was picked up by a good Samaritan, and then let go in a park. According to Saturday’s ABC 13 News, “Libby,” a Yorkshire terrier, slipped out of a door at her home on Wednesday.
Her owner, Theresa Tiemann, began searching the neighborhood as soon as she realized that Libby was missing and she learned that a good Samaritan had picked the dog up and supposedly, went to an area veterinary hospital with Libby. According to ABC 13 News, the person who picked up Libby works at the Stafford Oaks Veterinary Hospital.
Staff at the veterinary clinic was unaware that the employee went to the place of business with Libby, so when Tiemann phoned to see if her dog was there, she was told, “no.”
Today, Libby is nowhere to be found – the story being told is that the employee gave Libby to a friend, who later decided that he couldn’t keep her and opted to release her into a park…hoping that someone else would find her and give her a home.
Tiemann is distraught that her dog is missing and she has no idea where she might be – in fact, she doesn’t even know if the story that she is being told is true. The veterinary hospital where she was taken is trying to help bring Libby home – on Friday, the Facebook page for the business posted a request for people to be on the lookout for the lost dog:
REWARD LOST DOG

Libby is not microchipped…something her owner regrets, and something which may hinder her being returned home.
