What started off as the heartfelt story about a man whose dog was impounded and who was able to retrieve him thanks to the money raised through the spread of a viral photo snapped by a California woman has taken and unexpected turn as he now threatens to sue her.
The pit bull mix, Buzz, was taken to an animal shelter in San Bernardino, Calif., after his owner Dave Thomas was arrested last week and there was no one to care for the dog. After Thomas was released, he visited the shelter and sat heartbroken by Buzz’s cage, because he didn’t have the $400 it was estimated to release the dog.
I have transferred $842.07 into my bank to reimburse myself for the shelter fees, vet and PetSmart shopping spree that I put onto my personal credit card. I had a discussion regarding the remainder of the donations and how he would like to spend them.
To begin with, Dave gave an incorrect name of Christopher to the shelter. Sanchez was looking for a Christopher when she was trying to find Dave. Christopher/Dave told Sanchez that he had been arrested for traffic tickets. The police confirmed that he was arrested on a felony charge. He was on the run and had a warrant for being at large. Superior Court records in San Bernardino show a pattern of disrespect for the law with traffic tickets galore. At the same time, Christopher/Dave had a prior conviction for drugs and also for theft of recycled goods, a violation of San Bernardino City ordinances.
