Some families experience difficulties in keeping with the expenses of having a dog so they surrender it to rescue centers. However, one family could not pay their bills so the government took their dog from them and sold it on eBay to cover for the unpaid bills.
– A dog that belonged to a family in Germany was seized.
– The dog was sold on eBay to cover for the unpaid bills of the family.
– The dog is now with a new owner.
The incident took place in Germany and people are enraged. Accordingly, the officials had a search warrant to look for items to seize. They took a laptop, a coffee machine, a wheelchair, and their doggo, a pug. The family said that during their trying times, their doggo provided comfort so the doggo was the most important valuable taken from them. According to a spokesperson from the German town, the seizure of the dog and later selling it on eBay was legal.
The dog is now with a new owner who plans to sue the city because the dog became sick later after acquiring the doggo and the medical bills of the dog are now skyrocketing.
