This is just so awful!!
There are few things we love more than watching soldiers reunite with their dogs after coming home from deployment.
This is basically the opposite!
Brandon Harker came home from Afghanistan a few weeks ago and found out his 2-year-old Labrador Oakley was gone.
The friend he had left Oakley with put the dog up for sale on Craigslist back in February!!
What kind of terrible friend would do such a thing??
Harker posted on Craigslist in an attempt to reclaim his dog, writing:
"I just recently returned from a 9 month deployment. And upon arrival back into the area I found out my yellow labrador retriever was either given away or sold while I was gone. I was told this happened in May, but it could have happened anytime from February till June. He is good with kids and other dogs. He has a unique coat, on his face he has spots of a darker yellow (champagne) he also has spots of the same color going down his sides and legs. If anyone has any information on this and can help me please do. I am just trying to get him back to me since he was wrongfully given away or sold with out my permission while I was deployed. I will also be able to verify the dog is mine because he is micro-chipped and registered to me. Once again thank you to everyone who sees this and tries to help. If you could spread the word about this issues that would be great as well."
We really hope that whoever has Oakley reads this and hits him up!
We want them reunited! Best of luck finding your doggy, Brandon!!
