Girlfriend Sells Soldier’s Dog On Craigslist While He’s Deployed

We all understand that loving, indescribable bond that we have with our dogs. It’s a connection unlike anything else in the world. But what if someone could just pull that security blanket right out from underneath you? That’s what happened to soldier Robert Gabbert. While deployed, he found out that his girlfriend sold his companion, Baxter, on Craigslist.

The family that bought Baxter wouldn’t be going away empty handed though. They, of course, had no idea the dog was being sold against the owner’s will. Robert Gabbert Sr. said he plans to send money to them so that they can find another dog for their children.

‘I do feel bad for them. They bought him and didn’t know that he wasn’t hers to sell. The kids should have a dog.’

Happy outcomes for everyone involved! Couldn’t have asked for a better ending. 🙂
