Animal rescue group wants Glyndon couple to return adopted Chihuahua

FARGO - A Fargo-based animal rescue organization on Thursday sued a Glyndon, Minn., couple, saying they are not fit to keep the Chihuahua they adopted in December from the organization.

FARGO – A Fargo-based animal rescue organization on Thursday sued a Glyndon, Minn., couple, saying they are not fit to keep the Chihuahua they adopted in December from the organization.

Jolene and Dillon Simmons have not responded to several requests from the rescue organization, 4 Luv of Dog, for information on the dog's medical care, according to the lawsuit filed in Clay County District Court.

A contract signed by the couple required them to have the dog spayed and vaccinated, according to 4 Luv of Dog's lawsuit. The rescue claims the couple have not responded to "several attempts to seek information ... as to compliance" with the contract's requirements.

The animal rescue group wants a judge to order that the dog, a female named Mabel, be returned, "with the assistance of law enforcement officials if necessary."

Jolene and Dillon Simmons did not respond to a phone message seeking comment.

4 Luv of Dog was involved in a controversy in February when it took possession of two dogs that landed in a Moorhead pound after they escaped from a family's home about 50 miles away. The family posted a viral plea on Facebook, asking for their dogs back. The rescue eventually returned one of the two dogs.
