Nice to see you this morning Sam welcome -- show.
Thank you -- -- me so ticked me through what happened back when you actually lost the dog to begin -- -- chase and gone listener was early Sunday afternoon I was out on a job.
Where he can actually come with me or is normally would have been with me and he just basically was let out to use the bathroom and hop the fence and then disappeared.
And then I instantly put up ads on Craigslist -- all -- the neighborhood -- around for miles looking form.
To not find enough and you didn't give up hope and then it up.
Apparently got a new owner at least temporarily and someone took took in took in -- started to take care of them.
And that how did you discover that he had been taken in and cared for you thought he might have been killed or or lost altogether right.
Yes I feared that he was stolen or he was ended up dead after all this and I was at a local drive through.
Copy shop and this lady pulled up right behind me with chase right in the back of her car.
I pulled up right behind me in the -- what'd you say what did you do.
-- I instill when I'm recognized chase I instantly put the brake on got out -- car went -- started asking her questions started asking her if she had.
Tried any attempts to try to contact me.
Track and -- is that we started showing her chases.
Abilities to jump and do all these other tricks that we can't amend the -- and then we ended up having the move from that drive -- because it was very busy as it was Mother's Day and the lady met mean extort the -- -- And you say that -- told you you said that -- chase actually recognize you ran right up to settle licking you when you called his -- Yes and as I walk up to the car start calling his name and he jumped right out of the car right out of her window right in my arms so now.
I'm sure everything's fine normal right you've got chased back in your happy -- reunited with -- -- Italy was kind enough to handed all over to you.
No that is not the case at all I've yet to be reunited with my god.
And it throughout the past two months of trying to get Portland police to do something about retrieving my property because under -- -- that's what it is it's property.
Nothing has happened and yeah it's become this huge ordeal and now I'm also been sued.
You can see you lady -- Jordan bigs that we reached out to her lawyer they declined to respond how are you being sued.
I honestly don't know I have been served with the paperwork yet but I did retained an attorney yesterday yes there is a lawsuit against me.
Unbelievable did you have a Simpson RFID tag in the dog or any sort of identifying information.
Yes originally I had a license in 2010.
Because he hadn't gotten out before and he had gotten into custody by the -- county animal services just like.
You know I was hoping would have happened with this time and so he had registration tag that they give you when you pay for your licensing.
And I took that -- to the local Wendell Wright stores around here and -- engraved his name on my phone number -- and -- underneath.
Identification number apparently that's not enough right now well.
