(Memphis 8/22/2011) When a Raleigh woman held a yard sale over the weekend she didn’t know some visitors would think it was “free for all.”
Not only did some bargain hunters walk off without paying, but she believes they also left the family dog.
“I’ve had her for five years,” said Jacqueline Reed.
Reed says she realized her dog, Bianca was missing after she ran after a customers who picked up some items, but didn’t pay.
“She was loading the stuff and we just told her you didn’t pay us. She said oh, I paid somebody. We said no you did not pay us,” said Reed.
She says the woman finally paid and left with her family, but believes she also drove off with her dog.
She says she even saw a man in the vehicle holding down her pet.
“I thought he was intoxicated cause he was slumped over. Either he was holding her down or he was holding her with his foot,” said Reed.
She said just minutes earlier their children had been playing with the dog. She says she never imagined anyone would just walk off with Bianca.
“Not only did you try to take my stuff you took my dog, too? You gonna take my dog too,” said Reed.
Last month we told you about a 10-year-old-boy who had a puppy stolen from his back yard in the Berclair area.
His family believes whoever took the dog planned to sell it.
Reed is afraid the same thing is going to happen to her Bichon Frise and is asking for the public’s help.
“If you lurky about buying a dog look into it before you purchase a dog because these dogs are designer dogs they are expensive. nobody is going to just sell a dog,” said Reed.
Reed says while the ordeal has shaken her faith in humanity, she’s now relying on strangers to bring her dog home.
Reed says the family of four left in a tan or beige..newer, Chevy SUV.
