In Lincoln Park, Michigan, a local realtor, showing a home marked on the Multiple Listing System as vacant, turned out to be the very spot a little Chihuahua had been abandoned in the basement living in a cage in its own feces and urine. Realtor Alison Reedy had been showing buyers the home when she came across the disturbing discovery.
According to WxyzNews, Alison called the listing broker who told her the current owners of the home were forced to move out and leave the dog at the home. She captured a photo of the dog in the cage, surrounded by it’s own waste in the cold and dark home, and called the Lincoln Park Police. An officer arrived and picked up the dog and took her to the local animal control.
So why did Alison lose her job as a real estate agent with Downriver Real Estate? According to Alison, who has been selling real estate for six years, she was in violation of an ethic’s policy for not calling her broker first to report the situation and posting the dog’s photo and what happened on social media. As for being fired as a result of Alison saving the dog, she has no regrets. Instead she states she has other and better opportunities in her future.
The Chihuahua’s owner could be facing animal cruelty charges.
