Annie Lazerwitz and Joe Medici are unsure how their two-year-old beagle mix went mysteriously missing from a Cleveland dog day care center.
The couple adopted their dog, Jack, from a shelter three weeks ago. They were scheduled to go to an out-of-town wedding, so they had Jack evaluated at the Mutt Hutt boarding facility. If Jack did well with the other dogs, the couple would board their dog there.
Medici dropped Jack off in the morning and when he returned four hours later, the doggy day care center told him that Jack had disappeared.
The owner of Mutt Hutt said that Jack may have scaled the ten-foot fence and escaped from the facility. She said there were 35 dogs at the day care center that day, with only three people supervising them. She added that a situation like this has never happened before.
Medici walked all around the facility and did not see any place big enough where Jack could escape underneath the fence.
“Isn’t that their only job to take care of our dog?” said Lazerwitz. “Everyone that comes in that door with their dog, they’re entrusting them to take care of that animal, so when they come to pick them up they’re fine.”
The owner of Mutt Hutt said that if Jack cannot be found, the couple will be compensated for their loss.
