The term “dog flipping” refers to when a pet is stolen and then put up for sale on sites like Craig’s List.lost dog found

For a family in northwest Harris County, it hit home last December when their 11-year-old terrier went missing.

‘Sushi’ apparently escaped through a hole in the backyard fence. The same day, Kara Lowe’s husband received a strange call asking if he was missing a dog.

When the family couldn’t find Sushi, they called the number. The person who answered denied any knowledge of a dog.

The family had its suspicions.

A few weeks later, a dog identical to Sushi was posted on CraigsList.com. An attempt to confront the seller failed. The trail went cold.

A few days ago, a new Craigslist.com ad was posted. This time, Kara Lowe contacted the seller and set up a meeting, which took place Friday on a Sam’s Club parking lot in Cypress.

“I didn’t think it was her,” she says. “Her coat was a different color. She’d been dyed.

It didn’t help that the dog didn’t seem to know her.

Still, the sale went through.

“Fifty dollars, and for me, it was priceless,” said Lowe. “I figured even if it wasn’t Sushi, it was somebody’s dog that we could save and try to return.”

That wasn’t necessary. Lowe’s friend, an animal rescuer who accompanied her to the buy, brought along a microchip reader. The dog was Sushi.

On Friday afternoon, she seems to be recalling her old life, playing with the family’s children and their other dog.

For Kara Lowe, Sushi represents 11-years-old history, the pet she had before her marriage and her children.

Her advice to other people looking for lost pets — look on CraigsList.com and then start investigating. And be sure to microchip your pet.

    Wow, how stupid, i would have had them check the microchip while looking at the dog, before handing off money. I would have never gave her a dime after it showed the dog belonged to me, in fact i would have then called the cops and had them arrested. A pet is considered pricate property, and thats considered selling stolen property. Its also illegal to purchase stolen property.

    If you configure your Linux distribution to not boot into the
    graphical desktop, you will immediately see that the computer boots
    faster and the time you reach the login prompt is way shorter than the time you reach your desktop.

    A significant amount of time is spent on the graphical desktop initialization.We will continue our article based on this idea.
    Instead you can run the same programs in your Linux computer and enjoy a better performance.

    out by themselves quit before they get a good workout.
    People that are working out with a trainer will usually try to keep going until they are given permission to quit.
