The Stutbits, a New York family, is trying to get back their dog, Tootsie Roll. Tootsie Roll went missing from the backyard in early November, but she was not microchipped, licensed or had any identification on her. She was brought to an animal shelter and was adopted into another family after the standard holding period because the shelter couldn’t identify Tootsie Roll.
The shelter said they can’t return Tootsie Roll to the Stutbits because they don’t want to set a bad example for other potential dog owners. The family has hired an attorney to get their Tootsie Roll back.
