Missing Ohio Dachshund Given Away At Yard Sale

Have you seen this Dachshund?

We can only imagine the heartbreak of this family in Parma Heights, Ohio:  to let your 11-year-old Dachshund out to go potty, he goes missing, and then to find a man who says he gave him away at a yard sale!  Excerpt from

Little did Brian Tabar know when he let his Dachshund "Oscar" out to do "his business" Aug. 6 that it would be the last time he would see the 11-year-old family pet.
Tabar and his 15-year-old daughter couldn't find Oscar, so they started to put signs up around their Ardmore Avenue neighborhood in Old Brooklyn.
While canvasing the neighborhood, Tabar met a man on Wetzel near Pearl Road who told him that he had picked up Oscar on Aug. 6. Thinking he was a stray, the man "adopted" Oscar as his own. This is where the story takes a strange turn.
The man told Tabar that he took Oscar to a yard sale on Aug. 7 or 8 in Parma Heights in the Chesterfield/Maplecliff neighborhood. While at the yard sale, he met a family who fell in love with Oscar. Apparently, they have Dachshunds of their own and took Oscar off his hands.
"He has been a part of our family for 11 years," Tabar said, "and my daughter is devastated."

Thank Dog he's home. Saw the owners comments. She should put name tag on Oscar so he won't be mistaken for a stray.
