That’s horrible. I hope they return the dog ASAP, that’s completely wrong.

Umm WHAT?! What are they teaching their kids? If it’s ok to steal a dog what else is it okay to steal?

@DeathByDesign:  It doesn’t sound like the family stole Bailey, but they are being selfish in not retuning the dog. Hopefully some peer pressure (and publicity) will help the other family realize that the right thing is to return the dog to the little girl who lost Bailey.

OMG! That was so sad. As a mother of an autistic child, I understand where the mother who found the dog is coming from, but that does not at all make it ok to steal a dog!

If the family that currently has Bailey realizes her owners are looking for her (and it sounds like they do) then yes, they have stolen Bailey.

Wow.. what kind of lesson are they teaching their children? I can totally understand about the other child bonding with the dog, but how selfish that they know another little girl is hurting missing her dog. And they know who the rightful owners are.. ugh.

How do they not consider the dog to be stolen?! You found something that is not yours, the owner is asking for it back, and you’re refusing! I too hope the media pressure gets the new ‘owner’ to give the dog back.

My dogs are like my children. If anyone found them and I found out they weren’t planning on returning them, I would be in mad as hell! I would pull out their adoption records/vet records and then call the police, file charges, do whatever it takes to get them back. These people are just selfish and cold hearted! Go to the SPCA and find your own dog to call your own!

Seriously, I have no idea why this family is trying to work out something with the people who took the dog.

I can’t believe the police are saying the dog isn’t stolen. IT’S NOT THAT FAMILY’S DOG! The dog’s owners bought him. The dogs owners have been paying for his vet, his food, his toys.

The dog went missing and now it magically belongs to someone else? Hell no. that’s not what we do with children. Oh my kid is lost and you found him so he’s now yours? ( i know it’s not the same thing obviously)

Those parents should have known better than to take the dog in and keep him knowing the son would become attached. They sound like unscrupulous people with low moral character. Gross. I hope they get their dog back, I would be furious.

That is HORRIBLE.  Its one thing to keep a dog after making a search for their owners but to keep the dog(and its a yorkie puppy so you know its not a stray) that you know belongs to someone else is sick.  That puppy misses their family and is sad no matter how well you are taking care of them.
