If the original owners come forward? You mean the ones that tossed him from the truck?
Did you report all this to the police? This is a crime. The embedded puppy collar (did not happen if the truck was stolen or just the puppy was stolen), throwing him from the truck...and all documented. No reason to hide him. He's yours.
Yes we reported it to the Highway Patrol & our Local city Police.
You would have to know our local city police on animal abuse. We have people who are known animal abuser's adopting dogs from our local shelter to later use as bait dogs. This gets ignored as does any other offense. Our family worries that should we have to return Reno to the original owners he would be lost forever. So we are making sure to put as much Red Tape in the way .
