This week, a man who dubbed himself “Dogthedogsaver,” wrote on the social media site Reddit that he took a dog named Heidi, from a home last week in west Fort Worth because, he said, she was suffering in the cold.
Dogthedogsaver posted a profanity-laced letter to Heidi's owners on Reddit, accusing them of being neglectful pet owners.
But on Thursday night, Dogthedogsaver confirmed on Reddit that Heidi was returned to her owners.
Dogthedogsaver also posted that he gave the owners money “to repair the lock” and that they cursed him.
The couple on Friday seemed overjoyed to get their dog back.
"Thanks be to God Almighty for answering our prayers,” Mary Clay Gupton, the dog’s owner, said Friday in an email.
