In just another puppy mishap, but this time with Delta Airlines, an 8-week-old white and brindle puppy named Ren went on multiple incorrect flights over the weekend, leaving his owner, Josh Schlaich worried and frustrated.
Schlaich had purchased the dog from a Virginia breeder, and Ren was put on a Delta flight to Boise with a stop in Minneapolis. The adorable ball of cuteness was due to arrive Saturday night, but instead of arriving in Boise, Ren went to Detroit, Las Vegas and Salt Lake City! To be more precise, Ren spent Saturday night in a kennel in Detroit, Sunday morning he flew to Minneapolis and then because he was on the wrong flight again, ended up in Las Vegas. From there he flew to Salt Lake City, and by Sunday night arrived in Boise.
And so Schlaich took out his frustrations on the Delta’s Facebook page stating, “Hey Delta, was supposed to receive my 8-week-old pup this evening,” but had received a call that Ren was going to an unknown location because of a delayed flight. Schlaich tried multiple times to call Delta and get updated information, and one representative even yelled at him before rudely hanging up.
Delta has since apologized, however the posts have been deleted from their Facebook page. Schlaich did update his post to Delta, however stating Rem had arrived safely and thanked Delta.
Schlaich has been reimbursed for all of the shipping costs. The airline stated they have also launched a review to review procedures.
