Robert Gabbert was deployed to Afghanistan in March. He left his 3-year-old Shiba Inu, Baxter, with his girlfriend.
According to a now-deleted Colorado Craigslist ad that appeared recently, Gabbert’s girlfriend decided to sell the dog.
As Gabbert’s story spread around the web, users on Facebook and Imgur came together, hoping to find out where Baxter had been sold off to.
The local news joined the hunt for Baxter, as well.
This week it was discovered, though, that Baxter was with a new family now and they don’t want to give him back.
