Key points:The woman says she feared for her family’s safety after the puppy was left in the house on SaturdayThe dog was later found in a dumpster, but she fears it could have been a criminal offenceShe says she and her husband were terrified and could not sleep last night because they could not think of anything else to do with the dog and it was getting closer to the home The woman was worried that her family would be killed if the puppy were to get into trouble with the law, the ABC reported.
But she said she was so nervous that she was just “worried and nervous” she left the family home and went to her car to call her husband.
She says when she got home she thought she would be alright and that she would not be afraid of her dog.
“I thought, well, she will just be alright.
She will be fine.
I thought I would be safe, I would just be in my house,” she told the ABC.
But just after 4pm on Saturday she received a call from the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) that her four month old dog had been found in the dumpster.
The dog had not been there long when it was found.
The woman, who does not want to be named, says she called the DPI and asked them to look after the dog, which they did, and then she returned to the house and got the dog into her car.
The DPI said the dog was a service dog and was allowed to stay in the home.
“He is a service animal, he does not need to be in a household,” the Dpi said in a statement.
“If there was a reason for the dog to leave the household, we would have been able to assist the dog.”
The Dpi has since confirmed it had found the dog.
A DPI spokesperson said the DPP would investigate the matter.
“Our dog has been placed with a foster family,” the spokesperson said.
“We are looking at what happened and whether the DPD should have taken this decision.”
The spokeswoman said they were “working with the local community to ensure the dog’s welfare and safety”.
“The DPP will investigate the situation and will take appropriate action,” the statement read.
“Anyone with information on this matter should contact the DDP at 1300 526 546 or contact the local police.”
