The shelter should verify OWNERSHIP! before placing any of those dogs. There may be some co-ownerships/dogs there on breeding contracts...they are not checking microchip information either, after several requests to do so. I don't understand why they are adopting them out so quickly....most shelters will at least have a screening process with a wait period before selling dogs.
There is one person in the Netherlands that has a male stud dog in this mess....she cannot even get anyone to help her get her dog back!
