Dog Returned After Being Taken From Man With Mental Disability

NEW PORT RICHEY, Florida – John Wynne of Pasco County told FOX 13 his 2-year-old pit bull, Petey was his best friend. But Wynne says on Monday night, while he was out walking Petey and another dog near Jenner Avenue and Seven Springs, a woman in a white car pulled up and began claiming Petey was actually her dog, Cash, who’d gone missing.

”Petey was my baby,” Wynne said. “I said, ‘No, I got this dog from a shelter.'”

Wynne, who is disabled, says he offered to show her proof that Petey was adopted from the SPCA in New Port Richey in July of last year. Before that happened, however, the woman took off with the dog.

It seemed Petey would resume his former life with his original owner, but Tuesday night, deputies recovered Petey from the woman’s home and returned him to the Wynnes.

Deputies say the woman is recovering. The case is still on-going and has been turned over to the State Attorney’s Office.
