Pittsburgh, PA – A dog was abandoned in a stroller at the Pittsburgh International Airport after the owner was told that the pooch could not board the plane without a crate. According to the Allegheny County Police Department, the French bulldog was found near the airport’s short-term parking lot.
Thanks to the dog’s embedded microchip, the police identified the owner. The investigators’ attempts to reach the dog’s owner were unsuccessful, but airport personnel said that the owner had been informed that the dog could not board the plane without a crate, so the pup was abandoned and the owner departed.
The police said:
The investigation revealed the owner then abandoned the dog near short-term parking and proceeded to board a flight.
The authorities turned the dog over to the local dog warden, and the dog was transferred to the Animal Friends shelter for care. The owner is expected to face a charge of animal abandonment.
