Blue’s family told her the dog stayed in a backyard kennel when they weren’t home and someone kept taking her. They believe someone took her again, or somehow she got out.
“She's a very wiggly, very smart dog. They think she made her way near the freeway and someone picked her up,” James said.
After chatting for a bit, James said she got some shocking news: The owner told her she thought it was best Blue went back to Michigan.
“She said to me, ‘With me going to school full-time and working full-time, I can't commit to the dog. You seem like good people. Blue really likes you. You've taken good care of her.’” James said.
James was stunned: “I thought, ‘You guys could have told me this a long time ago.’”
So James and her brother loaded Blue back into the car and started driving away.
“Blue was looking back at the house like, ‘Wait a minute,’” James said. “We said, ‘It’s gonna be OK, Blue, we love you.’ It broke my heart, for her to look back and look out the window. I'm like, ‘I can't be upset, this is the best thing for Blue. I can't be upset.’”
