Police report in Leechburg, Pennsylvania that the couple called authorities on September 3, 2012 that two dogs wandered onto their property.

Shawn Lerch, the dogs’ owner, called the police claiming Duff had returned his golden retriever but not the Rottweiler. Lerch said he believed his dog was still in the area and suspected the Duffs were keeping him, despite what he had been told.

The story is full of back and forth, several phone calls and then the police chief, Michael Diebold, paid a visit to the Duff home. Diebold discovered their child with a babysitter and a lead to blow the case open.

The child said, “his mommy had given the dog to a woman from the Internet.”

Diebold contacted Scott Duff again and told him what his child had said.

Now Duff claimed the puppy “escaped from his yard” but later confessed that his wife had placed an ad and sold the dog on Craigslist for $50.
