This is just awful! How can a person do this??
When Alanis Morissette and her hubby Mario Treadway fired their housekeeper she took the family dog Circus with her as severance and is refusing to give her back!
The couple found the stray chihuahua/pug mix back in May of 2011 and adopted the pup after a shelter couldn't find him a home.
Maria, their fired housekeeper, claims that she wants ownership of Circus because she took care of him while the couple was away and she grew attached to him.
Alanis and Mario want their dog back so now they're suing Maria for over $25,000 and the return of their beloved dog.
We can understand how the woman feels attached to the dog but that doesn't mean she can just steal him!!
That's awful! That's their pup that they love and rescued!
We hope they get their pup back!
