Lost Dog, Owner Reunited after Drama
Golden Retriever Goes Home after Legal Adoption by Another Family

By Salatheia Bryant, Houston Chronicle

A day after the day she thought would never come, Christina Porreca was as ecstatic as a new mother. Her beloved Bear was back home with the rest of her four-legged “babies” after weeks of negotiations with a breed rescue group to win the dog’s return from the family who legally adopted her.The reunion came Thursday night, an hour after the scheduled meeting time — but not before she handed over a $250 check, money borrowed on her mother’s credit card — to cover the expense of caring for Bear. “It’s good to be a happy, happy family again,” Porreca said Friday. “Now, she’s going to be spoiled rotten.”

  1. From what I recall of the original story, the first owner did not sound very responsible. And didn’t mount much of a search, also no ID, no Vet records, etc… It sounded as though the new home was a distinct improvement.

  2. Yes, you’re right. I posted a link to that story in this post so folks could go back and look at the initial story.

    I am sure that the new home, especially since they are screened, was a far better one. Let’s hope this woman gets her act together with respect to assuming more responsibiity for her animal companions. They certainly deserve better.

  3. The old link is no longer available, so I was just going from memory. I’m glad I wasn’t totally off base. I just hope the dog is happy and well taken care of where she is now, and the owner has learned something from this experience.

  4. Darn. I hate that. It is such a problem with going back to news articles. I think I need to keep a copy of articles on my computer to safeguard against that. There is probably a cached version of the page but I don’t know how to find it.

    But, you are right. It was not a black and white situation by any measure.
