Dr. Tom Pfafman of the animal hospital stated: "I've never heard of this before, it's really odd that these circumstances occurred. All of his information was deleted 24 hours before he was lost."
It isn’t clear what has happened, a terrible computer glitch or a deliberate attempt to get rid of a sweet friendly dog who loves everyone?
"He just immediately comes up to you and smiles and wants to be hugged and scratched," said Dr. Pfafman.
In case the system has failed and his owner is searching for him, Pfafman and his staff are sharing his story. Meanwhile he is being fostered by a woman who recently lost an American Eskimo dog.
