Since November, 2012, Bea Teifke has been searching for her German shepherd, Teddy.
Teifke desperately wants to know what happened to the handsome dog who was sent to the Dewberry Family K9 Kennels for extensive training back in February, 2011.
The plan was for Teddy to spend an extended period of time at the kennels to be trained for his SCH 1 title. Though Teifke initially received regular updates on her dog, that changed as time went on.
At some point during Teddy's months long stay, something went terribly awry, communication broke down, and today, Teddy is nowhere to be found.
Teifke, who lives in Wisconsin, is beside herself with worry knowing that the man in charge of the boarding kennel, Cory W. Dewberry, is now wanted on 70 counts of animal cruelty.
In November of 2012, after communication all be screeched to a standstill, Teifke enlisted the help of the Fairfield County, Ohio, Sheriff's Office to retrieve her dog. A responding deputy was told by Dewberry that Teddy ran away.
Six days later, Dewberry himself finally told Teifke that Teddy ran away; Teifke claims the man showed no remorse.
Authorities in Ohio are searching for Dewberry after finding neglected dogs, living in deplorable conditions, at his training/boarding facility. Teifke wants to know if her dog died at the kennels, or if he was sold.
She is doubtful that the dog who she describes as "a sweet nature guy," would ever run away.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fairfield County Sheriff's Office at 740-652-7900.
