From ANIMAL PEOPLE, December 1999:
MONTPELIER, Vt.– – T h e
Vermont Supreme Court on November 12
upheld a lower court ruling that the North
County Animal League, of Morrisville,
had the right to award a female German
shepherd to an adoptive couple rather
than to her former owners, Chasidy
Lamare and Charles Arnold of Wolcott.
The dog reportedly escaped
from a yard tether on June 3, 1997, and
was held for nine days by the Wolcott
animal control officer before being taken
to the League shelter, eight miles away.
She was there for four weeks before
Lamare and Arnold came looking for her.
