Homeless man says women took his dog
And taking his dog.
Tony Pulliam said he and his dog Seven were offered shelter by two women during the hottest days of summer. In exchange he offered to paint their basement.
Eventually, though, the women kicked him out and kept his dog, later giving it to a relative.
When he objected and asked for his dog back, “they said, ‘No, you can’t have your dog,’” Pulliam told Fox News in Kansas City.
“I want my dog back” he said. “I don’t function without my friend … I don’t even want to get up in the morning.”
Pulliam met the women while panhandling with his dog at Interstate 435 and Front Street. “They seen my dog and seen how well I was taking care of my dog. They have been helping me out ever since.”
A friend of Pulliam’s, Don Faudel, said Pulliam always took care of Seven.
“He had a raincoat for his dog in the rain,” he said. “I just don’t understand how anybody could decide that anyone is not worthy of owning their dog. He took good care of his dog.”
Faudel and others are trying to find Seven, and get him back to Pulliam.
“As the saying goes, you can’t judge a book by its cover,” said one of them, Brenda Berger. “Just because it was unconventional doesn’t mean he didn’t deserve the dog,” she said.
One anonymous donor has offered a $200 reward for the return of Seven.
